I live in an urban/subarban setting. To be quite honest, I thought the biggest prob w/predators I would have, would be rats/mice or even my own dog. Boy was I WRONG! This evening my dog had his "intruder" bark. I went outside since he wouldn't stop barking and realized a young raccoon was sitting on my fence! Where did this thing come from? Anywho, his barking and my smacking a pool noodle against the house finally chased him offf. Yay, Jake Time to make the coop a little more predator-proof tomorrow.
