Poultry Run has 3 layers fencing 8ft tall garden fencing, 4 feet tall pountry fencing and 8ft tall deer fencing. Tues. Morning feeding - 2 - 4wk magpie ducklings dead another 1 missing. Bite marks their bills, no body bites. Led me to believe it was an owl? Wed. Morning feeding - 6 month old American Goose laying near fence, No visible bite marks anywhere, bill is scraped up and a little bloody, can't stand or lift her head, but she is not dead. Big hole in the 8ft tall deer fencing (That black plastic coated stuff). Goose gone by 2pm. Now I'm thinking it was a Raccoon, but we haven't seen Raccoons in over a year. Plus our LGD patrols at night, but he's only 1 yrs old and the only thing I've ever seen him "kill" delibertly are garden hoses. He's played a few ducks and geese to death when he was younger, but he's finally grown out of that. I'm attributing the big hole in the deer fencing to him pawing at it trying to get whatever it was in the run attacking the geese and ducks. I can't confine the geese/ducks to indoor housing at night at this time. Am I navie in thinking that my LGD will take care of the predator instinctively or do I have to train him to? I know that he patrols the property at night because I've walked the path he's made and found his markings. I really thought getting this dog would answer all my predator issues. Sorry no trail cam or infared pictures. I did order 2 sets of "Nite Eyes" to attach to the fencing, hoping that will help. Like everyone else, I hate losing birds after putting so much time and effort into growing them up.
