That's an excellent idea. Just make sure that if the fence is placed on the ground and not a slab of concrete or decking, that the fence goes down at least 6" so nothing can dig under and into it. Also, use turkey wire or 1/4"-1/2" hardware cloth - NOT chicken wire - it is much too weak for a mountain lion, coyote, etc. Even some very determined cats can bend and rip through chicken wire!

This last idea came as a result of the appearance of a mountain lion the last 2 years. He hs never offered to attack me or the cats, but he usually had a deer carcass he was working on since he shows up around deer season and some of the hunters don't track down (more likely, too lazy to) their wounded deer and finish them. So they run till they drop and the lion, coyotes, wolf and bear around here eat well. The lion was only the distnce between 2 utility poles from my mailbox each time I saw him and he just looked at me and strolled across the road. ---- Lorrie <felineres...@frontier.com> wrote: > On 05-25, MaiMaiPG wrote: > > How do you deal with coyotes and dog packs? > > We live in a private resort area, and all dogs must be inside > or on a leash.
