    This is a bit of an offspin of the recent posts on bears...

    We are looking into moving to an area that surely has bears living there. On top of good fencing, to include electric, and guard animals, we want to have our coop strong enough to withstand a bear attack, "just in case". Better safe than sorry!

    Does anyone have any experience with log end construction? We were going to make their coop out of that, and it would seem to be quite solid, but then we haven't heard from anyone who has experience with it as far as it relates to bears. Does anyone here know anything about that? The walls would be quite thick..
