I went outside to check on my girl's and all I could hear is coyote's howling. About 300 =400 yards away. Which is really close for them. It was recently deer season here in Michigan. So they are probably on a deer carcass. As it was only 8:45 PM and they were howling non -stop for the whole 10 minutes I was outside! Welcome to northern Michigan! ANd I thought the racoons and hawks were bad. I will just have to be vigilant and make sure they are locked in at night.
