A 3 month old male is missing from our herd and I fear coyotes are the cause. We moved our herd across the way from us to a newly fenced pasture and wooded area and I go check them regularly, but I've seen coyotes in the area. What can I do to protect these goats from the coyotes and neighborhood dogs? I hate to bring them home they seem so content. I can't be there all the time, but when i am I keep a gun handy and i'll pop the critters if I get a chance. I looked into a gaurd dog, but that's a long way off by the time I could get one and get it trained. Is there anything I can do to keep the coyotes away?
