I have been having problems with coyote killing my animals & aparantly around here animal control or the other agencies dont do a thing...but they have PAC agents-they charge $300-500 to remove a single coyote...no way am i paying that. My dogs were doing a good job of keeping critters away, but now they are roaming further away & arent always near the barn. So i need to do some coyote proofing of my runs. The big problem is my property is all ledge. Putting up a fence for the birds was a nitemare, the only fence poles we could get in the ground (and barely at that) were the bang in type with pointy stake type bottoms. Some of them are held in place with rope tied to opposing trees, otherwise they wouldnt stay up or go far enough into the ground. We ended up using chicken wire since the poles wouldnt support heavier fencing. Now its time to make some changes & im looking for ideas. One thing we have an abundance of here is rocks of all sizes. The coyote got under the fence in an area where the birds had a small dirt bathing hole that was right up to the fence, then it bent the fence up since it couldnt dig into the ledge. So how can I use the ledge to my advantage- and when i say we have alot of it I mean in the barn area its impossible to dig a hole...so digging down & using hardware cloth is not an option here. Another problem is some of the birds have learned to fly over the fence- so i guess im going to need to cover & enclose the whole area , 3 sides are 30ft long & the 4th is the barn.
