  1. Well, It's 10:40 AM here in ME.

    I was out in the field last night, around 7:00.
    Still light.I saw a "Fawn" In the field, and I said,"Shhh Ma look a fawn!"I look closer,"Thats not a fawn, that's a Fox!"No, Not a fox or a fawn, it's was a coyote pup.*shiver quiver*So yeah.
    Y'all MAINERS, Have youSEEN how brazen our predators are becoming?!Have you seen that Coy-Wolf thing?!I have, It's not scared of us!At all.And then that yote pup.
    You all watch out for your birds, @lazy gardener @The Angry Hen

    Hello,

    The other night I saw something I thought was a deer limp across the yard...
    We were outside, it was too long and short to be a deer! It was either a large fox or coyote! I hate them! It wasn't even worried, I was worried it started getting a bit to close!

    I think it was limping because my neighbor hunts them.

    Thank you for the warning!
    Foxes are no longer welcome on our property! ;)
    I hope coyotes leave too!

    Thanks again,
    -K

    P.S
    I hope your flock stays safe!!

    I even recently saw a little fluffy cute thing by our pond,
    at first I thought it was a kitten, then I looked and it had a stubby tail!
    I think it was a Lynx! :oops:

  8. EKKK!I caught cat on my Game Camera once.I thought:Yay!I found my neighbors cat!But it's huge, and it has something in its mouth, at night...
    Apron further consultation with my Uncle, it was a Lynx or Bobcat!

    That stinks! I hate finding signs of things bad,
    like feathers! :( I hate bobcats, they freak me out!

    Onetime my Dad and I were feeding the chickens and I went to get something from the barn, when I came back he said something under the dumpster screamed at him!
    I think it was a lynx too!

    Then, he looked out the kitchen window and a nasty looking cat was sitting on the bench!
    They are freaky! :oops:

    The lynx kitten wasn't even scared, we stood 6 feet away from him! :th

    Well, keep an extra eye out!
    We have been too! o_O :lol:

  10. Wow,

    Wow.
    I'm even scared of BlueJays.
    But Lynx :eek:
    If I see a feather in the yard, I scream and run to the chicken coop :oops:
    Why can't we live in a world were predators don't kill chickens!
