Hello, I was hoping somebody may have a 'non-conventional' idea for me. I have a black bear killing my chickens and turkeys, a couple a night. He's taken over 30 now.
Any ideas on what to do? The conservation people have said they will shoot it, as you can't retrain a bear that has eaten livestock. This one has already been caught and relocated once- he has had his chance and sadly didn't conform.
I have tried fireworks, my dogs, actual chasing on foot and in my truck. It's not working and he is coming right up to my place, sniffing around. Brazen!!
Anyone else have ideas on how to keep this from happenning again? I have electric fencing, regular fencing, and he has gone over everything!
I love bears and all animals, I know all about how bears work, but I'm hoping someone has found something non-convetional that worked. As mentioned, conventional is relocating, then shooting if that fails.....
