Owls Killing Ducks


There are 2 owls who have taken interest to our property. The have viciously killed 1 duck, 2 others are missing and they prey on our yard at all hours around our children and small dog. I need an immediate solution to keeping our children, pet, and herd save!!!

Unfortunately when we live close to nature there can be some risks to pets, livestock and even humans.  Wolves, foxes, racoons and mink are a common problem but often can be fenced out.  It would be impossible to fence out eagles, hawks and owls in most locations.  Hanging scare devices or even scarecrows that move in the wind, may have some short term effect. In the wilderness animals have to fend for themselves to avoid flying predators.  After dark keep pets and children indoors
