    I’m lucky that I still have a chicken coop and outdoor run.
    This guy came through about 7AM this morning.
    He was mostly interested in tearing down my bird feeders and eating sunflower seeds.
    Chicken was not on the menu today.

    And I thought I had predators! My daughter lives in Cloquet and I know just north of her on the iron range, your scenario would probably be pretty common. I sure wish continued luck with it!

    On the MN prairie.
    I have to say, I love this photo! It looks like the bear and chicken are having a conversation. (Yeah, I know - it's easy to say "I love this photo" when it's not my chickens that bear is chatting with.)

    You might want to install some electric wire around because he'll be back and tear things to shreds if you don't.
