The predation issue has been significantly improved. There have now been five adult coyotes and one den removed, plus one adult that was hit on the road. The kills have all but stopped, with only one in nearly three weeks. There are still coyotes in the area, we hear them regularly and see them occasionally, but the main culprit seems to be gone. The dogs seem to be back to their usual selves and are noticeably less tired. Hopefully, we can now return to our peaceful coexistence.
