    When I let my dogs out this morning something ran. It was big as a cat but fluffier tail. I have 3 of these holes. 2 tried getting in to my chickens and ducks and the big one goes under my patio. I bought some repels all but from reading the forums sounds like it's garbage? I live in Utah by the way in a city.

    Very likely it's a raccoon.
