building. A mink or weasel getting into the coop sure would disturb them for awhile. I remember finding the neighbor's flock dead when they were on vacation. Farmers had chickens way back when I was growing up on a farm. That would've been 45-50 years ago or so. We had a milk cow. Those days are long gone. The only livestock on most farms nowadays barks.

Bilingual cat from south of the border? "Si, roof, roof!"
Real shame, some predators are sneaky, vicious, and rather underhanded. And there is Congress, but I repeat myself.

My friend had a chicken coop in the back yard. Raccoons were his problem. It seems that whatever he did, the raccoons could get in. He was getting to think that they had keys to the locks and they would lock it back up when they left. :-)

Did you call the local locksmith, and see if he'd been making chicken coop keys recently? Hope your friend figured out the racoon entry port, and repaired it.

Yeah, I saw that video. There is another video of the same location, but the bear is dragging out a dumpster that has both lids closed.
