    Do I need to be worried about them at night with my 4 month old goats?

    Thanks,

    I dont think so usually coons go for chickens and eggs and dog food or cat food. I would be worried about rabies with the foxes and coons. Most wont hurt them I have large guard dogs in with my goats to protect from coyotes.

    Yup, I can't say I've heard of attacks on goats by either of those.

    With the heat now, make sure you have plenty of water buckets or tubs so that if by chance the coons or others drink they have other options to drink from. Safety first.
