woke up to chickens going crazy. Went outside, some outside of house/coop, some inside. Look inside, a coon. Went to get gun, no shells, wife moved them and didn't remember where she put them. Now I'm ready to kill 2--not really. Go back, no coon. Later hear dog barking, he has him backed into corner, but smart enough not to tackle this coon. Called neighbor, he brought his gun, coon gone???? Where did he go??? About 10 minutes later, there he is. Am I going crazy???? Called neighbor again, kept my eyes on him. Turned out he crawled up fence to top of house (9' tall). Neighbor showed up, we devised plan as chicken house is 2' from shed. Coon jumped onto chicken house, jumped for freedom except for once I hit what I was shooting at. Tonite chickens had to be forced to go in. Reinforced back of house, replaced summer screen with winter plexiglass, turned radio on, and left some human remains outside of door. See if they come back tonite as I'm convinced it was a family that attacked and not just a coon. Damages? Lost 1 rooster and 1 hen, could have been much worse.
