Keeping Bears at Bay


Raccoons live almost everywhere and love dining on chickens, eggs, and feed  Wise owners of backyard flocks keep their hens in a sturdy coop with doors tightly closed when nighttime raccoons are on the prowl


Imagine the damage a 20-pound raccoon could do to a coop if it weighed 500 pounds!

That would be an American Black Bear
