Dammit, two rabbits were killed by coyotes right outside my back door last night.
Advertisements [?]
I have never seen them in our pasture before.

They were hunting on two sides of us Saturday night, I chased them off but I guess they got what they came for after all.

And now that they found a way in I doubt we'll be able to stop them from doing it again. Will walk the fence later.

I have a Warmblood filly that's way too big for them to f*ck with and we just bought a burro - hoping we can control this so we don't have to kill anything ourselves. I want to adopt a rescue dog (or three) but I couldn't leave them out to be chewed up since they're way outnumbered.

Sigh...
