Last week there were four bears sniffing around the coop (posted about it here): https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=180565&p=1 Last night a red fox was trying to get into it. Seems like every time I fell asleep, the chickens and dog went nuts. I got glimpses of it twice, but couldn't get a shot. I have an arsenal next to the bed: Electronic hearing protecters, flashlight, 12 gauge loaded with birdshot to pepper a bear's butt, and a .22 with an aimpoint sight and a suppressor in case it's the fox. This is war.
