My LGD Isaiah is "on the warpath" now, as we have coyotes that have come down from the hills & woods during the ice storm, and taken our big Polish rooster,Fred! One of the tom turkeys killed a young silly little Silkie earlier ( my 11 year old DD came running in, the tom ripped off her entire crest and all the flesh on her head.... DH left the trapdoor to the banty coop open earlier & she wandered out) , and since the ground is so frozen from the ice, we can't bury her so I'm sure the coyotes (or whatever took the roo) can smell it. No GUN, darnitalll... any tips we can use on the short term, besides letting the Pyr go at 'em alone (he's capable, but only 9 months old) ? When I was trying to figure out a way to put the Silkie down, & herd the turkeys in, I heard a coyote(s) very near, right down by the creek, and the pup has been going off ever since he saw/smelled the silkie, and heard the coyotes. Any suggestions ...? --We are limited as to what we can do as it's been freezing rain since yesterday.
