Poop Patrol


I thought something was laying dead in the stone drive going back to the neighbor`s this am,but when I looked it was turds,not from my dogs.The poop was black with berries in it.My dh said it looked like bear scat to him.I`m worried as the goats pen is right there.I know we have foxes,but we`ve had no trouble with anything trying to get the goats.Last year I did string wide reflective tape the whole way around the pen but I took it off this year.

our 82 year old neighbor said he had a cub at his bird feeder 2 years ago,I didn`t really believe him.My feeders & the large plastic locking garbage cans that hold the goats grain aren`t distrubed either.now I`m worried.I`ll put the tape back up & maybe invest in a wildlife camera as I`ve wanted one of those anyhow,now I have an excuse,I`m a very light sleeper so if the dogs wake me I`ll know to check,phylliso
