I am new to chickens but accustom to having plenty of bears around. Last night a young bear ripped apart the chicken run, he did not seem to be interested in the chickens (safely locked in their house, this time) but some remains of feed that was on the ground inside the fenced run area. This is the second bear problem this spring. I am sure it will not be the end. Does anyone know of some deterrent for the BEAR? I am not interested in repairing fence weekly. Any suggestions would be appreciated. NOTE: I do not want a dog at this point in time. Thanks, Shawn & Sara.
