I hear the coyotes and it sounds like they are right next door. We had chickens for years with zero problem, then they slowly started disappearing. We blamed the coyotes. Till one morning I saw the fox. So 40 years in the country, zero coyote problems. I’m happy to let them help keep the voles in check. If you don’t see a coyote killing, you just don’t know. Wild dogs, skunks, foxes, bob cats, and the occasional disturbed human are just as likely.
