So my landlord calls about 2.5 hours after full dark here. They live about a mile away and he asks "is everything okay there? I'm outside and I hear coyotes and they're coming from there." I thanked him and said I'd check. Outside I went with a flashlight, 5.5 month old Grt Pyr and 9mm gun. We went out quietly and I was shining the light around for a few minutes. Then I see a shape and eyes shining in the light just inside the pasture running away from the coop. I shot 2 rounds at it, though I'm not a great shot and it was dark. Whatever it was (looked like a dog for sure probably coyote). I scared our poor pyr pup. He didn't run away but I don't know if he was nervous because of the gunshot or the smell. Poor little guy. We had a long discussion about how brave he was and that he can't be a wuss. LOL This is the closest I've seen them to the coop. Tomorrow morning we'll be making the rounds in the pasture to spread dog scent. Its been a little while since we've been out.
