Mountain Lion?

  1. The only predator that I know of for sure that has attacked on our property is a mountain lion. A couple of years ago before we owned the place, a cat attacked one of the horses here. It did not end well for the horse. Can chicken coops be made safe from cougars? Will electricity do it?

    We have them (mountain lion) here as well as black bear, fox, coyote, raccoon, possum, rat, weasel, domestic dog, bob cat and so on.

    1/2 inch hardware cloth covering all opening... and an E-wire placed properly work well! Lock up every night.

    By far with all the predators I have... the most likely to attack (here) is raccoon during the night.

    Day time GROUND predators SO FAR have been deterred by my own activity coupled with that of my dogs. I did lose a few chicks to a hawk.

    Good luck! :fl
