“Huh. How Convenient.”

Alright, I seemed to have – at least temporarily – deterred the predator, the ghastly beast of Prince Edward County, from taking any more birds. Two nights now, and no more dead ducks!

I doubled-down on security. Complacency out the window. Where a reasonable person might be satisfied with one layer of wire, I went with two. A mere cage…no way. The cage will be up high, safe behind barbed wire and an electrified moat.

It turns out, strangely, that having a bunch of vulnerable prey animals all gathered together in one place tends to attract animals that are wont to eat them. I wonder what must go through their minds as they happen upon a bunch of chickens in a cage right out there in the open?

“Huh,” they must say to themselves. “How convenient.”
