Is my coop secure enough? Could a snake or critter get in here?

Jun 7, 2022
Hey everyone!
After a friend had something come take her chicks last night (so heartbreaking), it made me want to doubly reinforce my coop. The upper half is enclosed in chicken wire and the bottom half is enclosed with hardware wire attached to planks and aproned 8”underground to prevent digging. I’m going to double wrap the hardware cloth at the base, but I wanted more opinions on the top - should I replace with hardware cloth? I doubt anything can get up there, but I’m a little paranoid now. Although the barn door is heavy and I keep a brick at the end so it can’t easily be pushed open, I’ll be adding a two step latch just in case. Thank you!
