After 3 killings i now no its not my daschund..what a relief. It was hard to belive that the same dog who brought me home a day old duckling in perfect condition woud go and kill- but after the rabbit thing I really thought it was her. Now even with the rabbit thing..im starting to believe that she found the rabbit already half eaten & the smell got her into trying it out. Killer doxie has been on total lockdown since the silkie incident & today in broad daylight there was another killing- this time my male guinea..totally bummed over him- my guineas are unusual compared to ones ive had in the past- they dont take off & they LOVE the ducks so much they sleep cuddled up with them. what a shame..the best male guinea I have ever had..so protective & good with the other birds...sickening. So my conclusion ..the coyotes up here are looking to feed the pups..I have 39 acres & we saw a pack of them near the barn a month ago very late at night & havent seen or heared them since. So..im hoping our town will do something..i have no idea, but coyotes have been all over the news in MA lately becuase they have started atacking in the daytime.
