Early this moring my wife tells me, "there is an animal hurt down by the coop". Well I heard nothing, so I did nothing. When I went to feed the chickens I saw what the problem was, a bear had tried to get in the chicken yard. It must have been shocked good for it left without a sencod try. I did have to do some minor repairs to the fence, well worth the trouble. No chickens lost and no dead bear. At least this time.
