    dogs are hard to predict. the dog was here the other day and it did bark at me before it ran off. it barked at me before i grabbed a hold of it

    Quote:I learned the hard way Unless its federally protected Shoot Shovel and Shut up the 3 S's of owning poultry its a golden rule we live by. I Had a state trapper here once he told me the bobcats were not gonna bother my flock anymore and there wasnt much he could do about them.Unless they came on my property he stated he would put some hanging traps in the travel path and leg holds down and a cage by the water source and see what he came up with. But in his proffesional opinion the cat wouldnt return. well um........
    4 days later there were dead cats every where. mom pops and a cub. get my drift?
    Some things are best left unspoken.
