I have a large herd of goats at one farm and I have 2 dogs that stay with them 24 /7/365 . I don't have much of a predator problem .<quoted text>Call the State Police and voice your concerns. There is always more than one way to skin a coyote!
Although there are coyote packs all around the farm and they love to howl at night.
I shot one last year but he didn't look to well,( hung him on the fence for all the world to see)I have the farm fully fenced with woven wire and that slows down dogs.
The Neighbors dog got into the goats last year but these goats are big and they have horns,then the dogs got him cornered and tore him up some. The Neighbor was angry since it was his kids prize pup.
I told him that he was lucky that I saved his dog and not let my dogs finish him. Around here you need to try to get along with everyone.
My biggest predator problems are people stealing animals especially young goats.
I had 7 stolen last year and a large fat castrated male taken the year before during Christmas.
This was Reported to the local sheriff but they never do anything , I know it is my very rich next door neighbor who I have caught stealing anything that isn't nailed down.
We had a very hot discussion about it this fall and I haven't had any losses since.
I moved to the area about 10 years ago and I am still not well accepted because I wasn't from a 2nd or 3rd generation family.
Things are changing with more new folks moving here,but the county is politically controlled by just a few families.
