Well now we think we may have a BEAR, of all things. We're one of the ones having a problem with a weasel or mink. So we've got traps set, baited with liver and sardines. Night before last something hauled one of the traps a long way off into the woods, down by the creek. Several people have said they think it might be a bear. We spotted a bear on our road about a month ago. They're cutting down a BUNCH of trees just down the road from us. I think they are displacing a LOT of creatures. One of our neighbors spotted a bobcat crossing the road just below our cabin last Friday night. So we're having all kinds of fun now. So how much damage can a bear or bobcat do to cages and pens?? Do bears eat chickens or ducks or turkeys, etc?? Are bears or bobcats horribly aggressive when it comes to getting into cages and pens?? What can we do to stop them?? By the time my DH finishes redoing all the cages, coops, and pens around here, EVERYTHING will be covered with 1/2" hardware cloth, including the floors of the pens. But it will be awhile before we can get all of that done. What should we do in the meantime?? I'm hoping the bobcat will find the weasel/mink. Hope all you praying people will keep us in your prayers. We REALLY need it right now. THANKS!! Hope y'all have a GREAT EVENING!!
