Living on a farm i see alot of deer around. From time to time in the summer theres a bear that comes for apples. about 2 months ago was a new one for me...a Eagle tried to steal my little dog right out of my yard...fortunately for me she's a little chunky and the eagle dropped her. Poor little dog was scared to be out in the open for weeks! She had some nasty nasty gouges where the eagle's talons got her. But she healed up VERY nicely. Yesterday i was making supper and my little dog starts to yip and bark and comes flying across the yard from the apple trees (she was within the house fenceline) and up onto the deck...something moving FAST across the cattle pasture towards the fence catches my eye. It slows downs...and its a coyote...which proceeds to lay down about 15 feet from my deck and slink on its belly closer and closer to where my pup is. Well at this point i got mad. i opened the door and grabbed the old frying pan i use to feed the cats in...and i threw it at the creep. Well it howled and took off when i nailed it in the head. Hopefully its learnt its lesson! Do you have wildlife come close to your house? Has it ever tried to eat your pets??
