One of my sister's cats was killed, not just killed...butchered last Thursday night. They found him Friday morning. We recently (last summer) found out we have Black Bears in our county and Bobcats in our neighboring county. Here's the kicker y'all. One of my sister's neighbors told her that there's a Coyote den in the back woods behind their subdivision. I have never even seen a coyote before! Ever! In my entire life! BEARS, BOBCATS and COYOTES.................OH MY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! These are 3 animals we have NEVER had here. Now I have 3 new predators to protect my chickens and cats from. If the growth of NC doesn't slow down soon, we will run out of water (already happening), run out of trees and farm land (happening fast) and our wildlife will continue to be run out of THEIR natural environment. Sorry about the rant but this stuff is making me sick to my stomach.
