It's been a hard week for Daisy, the bichon dog that was found covered in blood by her owner in her Massachusetts backyard after an apparent hawk attack. Luckily, the dog survived and is back to smiling.
For pet owners with issues of birds or a high density of wildlife in yards should consider installing cat fencing for dogs. The idea may sound silly if you do not own a cat; but cat fencing can protect dogs just as well as cats. Unlike dog fences, cat fences have a top that prevents cats from climbing in or out; and will stop birds, feral cats, and other types of wildlife from reaching dogs.
This is a good method to consider for bird control on landscapes for animal protection.
