I'm glad my chickens sleep in their coop at night. I know that owls only hunt at night, but when do they start? Full night? Dusk? We've sadly had a whole bunch of neighborhood kittens go missing, and late last night, my neighbor went to hunt a missing one down and was too late, heard the owl, heard the poor kitten screaming. It was awful. PLEASE protect all the creatures YOU are being held responsible for. Assume there is SOMETHING out there just waiting for a meal. I don't know if it is the weather or what, and I know that bats aren't something to worry about out here (we have fruit bats) but I was shocked the other night when coming home on the FREEWAY a bat did a low sweep over the car, easy to identify him. But just weird. Way out of his territory.
