I think I may have found my killer! No, I haven't been able to shoot him yet, and I stress the word yet. If y'all thought I was mad on Monday, you ain't seen nothing yet! I am so mad now it took me 2 days to write this post. I only have 4 guineas left!
When my son went out Wednesday morning, he noticed a bunch of feathers. I was praying it wasn't what I knew it was. It was one of my beautiful guinea's feathers. We looked in the field and saw another pile of feathers. We walked over and saw feet. Both of my guinea's feet were in that pile of feathers. I felt so sick! And angry!
After trying to calm down, we tried to piece together what happened. We looked at the run where it happened. The guineas roost on top of the chicken run and there was a pile of feathers there too. I believe something jumped up (over 6 feet) and grabbed it, then took it in the field and ate it. That just makes me sick saying that!
My son was tracking and found something else disturbing. I think it used to be part of the wattles of the guinea. The picture is blurry, be thankful, you can't see it that good.
After finding these tracks, I have to agree with Southern Grits & Tidbits. She said it could be a coyote, and I believe these tracks prove that it probably was.
Here is a picture of a coyote. In some states, they pay you to kill them. I wish SC was one of them, cause if I get a chance, it will be dead. They all will.
