I have been reading these posts about people finding their animals dead. What are the alternatives to prevent these disasters? I just ordered an IP cam that should be fun. I have netting overhead to stop the hawks. My fencing is just light wire. Any animal can go under it. I have a radio on in the coop and a light. This Im thinking should deter wild animals but not a dog that is used to people. Luckily Im not in an area with a lot of dogs or should I say dogs with irresponsible owners. Electric fence? I want to increase the area so I would just be taking down again. What are people using? A shotgun and a cam giving me alerts is the best idea I have. Scarecrows?
