Well, I surely know the sun will come up. Not the right answer. Annoying me, hmm...have to think about that one. I am up before they are, so they are not waking me up. An intruder!!!! Yep, bet that is the right one. We are on a bear, racoon and coyote path. They traverse the busy ravine alongside our north part of the property.
The fence surrounding the chickenyard is about 10 feet tall and has wiggly chicken wire fence, nothing can climb up, it would surely bend enough that they would not be able to gain a footing and maybe fall off. We haven't had any problems with this fence, so far, had to find some wood to knock on.
Last night actually, there was a bunch of coyotes in the ravine. Eeeh gads!!!! The screaming and yipping that they do gives me the willies right from the tip of my head to the tips of my toes. It scares me half to death, even though I am in the confines of my home. I sleep with my bedroom windows wide open (doesn't matter the temperature), I am a fresh air freak. This haunting emittance of blood curdling noise floats right into my bedroom and wakes me from sleep immediatley. I listen to them as they meander along the ravine, heading way off to do their thing, whatever it may be.
I don't think that I will ever be comfortable with the screams that these creatures make. I have heard that they only make these particular noises after a kill. But what they have killed is beyond me. I am sure there is a myriad of small prey around that they are eating up. Eeeks!!! I am even getting terrified now thinking about it. All have an awesome and beautiful day. Cindi
