How to keep wildlife out of yard
Not sure if this is even possible, but I need to ask.
Tragically, Karitsa killed a raccoon in the yard earlier this week. I was so sad, but she was doing her job of protecting her home so am not mad at her...just sad. After the raccoon incident, I made it a point to go into the yard first and check for any wildlife first. I got home today after dark and took a quick look in the yard before letting the dogs out. All was good for a little while until I heard Hank barking. The neighbours dogs had been barking earlier so I thought he was just joining in. I get them inside then let my 2 fosters out to relieve themselves. Chase starts barking so I go back outside and see that they cornered another raccoon. I got both fosters back inside right away, thankfully they listened. Thank god Karitsa refuses to go outside when I come home in order to say our long-winded hellos, as i'm sure she would have caught that one too and killed it.
Is there a way to keep wildlife out of the yard? I don't want my dogs potentially getting hurt or another animal getting killed again.
