A few days ago, some animals (either two large stray dogs that have been wandering our five-acre patch of wilderness or a pack of coyotes) killed all 12 of my chickens. They just tore them apart, didn't even eat them all, just dismembered them. We don't have a gun yet (yay background checks from our totally fast and efficient government!) so my parents want to soak some stew meat in antifreeze, put all of our animals inside, and then just leave it out so whatever predators killed our birds eat it and die. Yes, I'm mad as all get-out at the predators responsible, but this seems almost too mean... animal control won't come all the way out here, so what other options could we have??? Thanks for any ideas.
