coyote problem

Asked November 25, 2013, 12:09 PM EST

We are having a problem with a pack of coyotes that are killing our sheep. Do you have any advice on how to get rid of them. We have lost 6 sheep within the last month. We are having to lock our sheep up in our barn, which is not feasible for us any more and would like to keep our animals safe.

Coyotes can be devastating to a flock, especially after a bunch of them have already had success at killing sheep. Unfortunately, it's hard to secure them unless you add in some protection measures. Many find electric fencing an option or guard animals. I'd be happy to discuss your specific situation, i.e. how many sheep?, how big of an area? things you've tried already? Feel free to give me a call. 970-641-1260. Eric
