Why would you have animals that you couldn't handle? Further, leaving them unprotected to get killed by a coyote? You make me want to puke.I had a couple of roosters that were like pit bulls. They would attack anyone and anything they came across. They wrecked my garden and all the flower beds and tore up all the screens on the lower part of the house.
One night a coyote came in and unburdened me. In the morning, all's that I could find left of the roosters were their heads.
That was the most peaceful they ever looked.
I have a lot of friends that do home farming. What you did was WRONG!
