I have had so many raccoon attacks here, but no kills! The first time was about a year ago when they tore right through the chicken wire. Then they broke a slide bolt completely off the coop door. Then they tore all the screens off the windows. Tonight however, the raccoon was attacked by the local pack of coyotes. It was the worse sounds I have ever heard coming from the woods but I hope they killed it. My coop is now everything but bear proof!

Try a trap....piece of bread with some peanut butter. They are very cheap at Tractor Supply. I had this fat coon on camera till last night. Released a long way from my coop this morning. Girls were very happy.....

We have many predators here (bears, bobcats, etc.) and we have avoided serious problems with a 5 wire electric fence. Still see some around once in a while but I avaid shooting almost everything EXCEPT racoons. I shoot them on sight.
