Deer vs. fence follow up

I guess we don't have a coyote problem or they are all out chasing tastier home fed poodles and tabbies.

The deer from yesterday's fence fight was laid out on the hill near the woods as agreed on with the game warden. As of the late morning walk with the dog, it remains untouched except for the flies, and they aren't even infesting yet. Perhaps without any real wounds there isn't enough smell. One day in the hot sun might change that.

Its a shame someone couldn't have taken the meat, but the concern was the medication used for the tranquilizing.

Leaving the goats out at night might be a safe option, with a good fence, based on this unofficial test.
