Last year we had a bobcat attack our neighbors full grown horse twice! It tried to go after our animals (goats and chickens) but got scared because of our neighbors shepherd dogs. I love them so much lol.Holy Cow! That is waaaaay to close. Glad you've got a bunch of big, barky dogs! The most I've had to contend with is a bobcat that killed one goat, injured another and totally carried away a kid one year. But none - zero - nada since I've had LGD's. And, we have seen and heard cougars in the vicinity. With our expanding deer population that come closer and closer to the house - I'm kind of worried that a cougar might follow them and see my goats as easier prey. So, really glad I've got the crew out there that doesn't mind working 24/7.
Bears scare the heck out of me. Makes me scared to have bees, it attracts them . Everyone with bees around here has fencing and electric wire surrounding them because they can be such a nuisance.wow
Our neighbors had a bear on their property once, it was on their property because of a forest fire. They also had a buried dead goat that the bear was trying to get.
