You have it pretty rough.

My neighborhood is next to a huge state park and nature preserve.
So my area is full of coyotes. So we put up a coyote fence to keep them out of our yard (having dogs and small children).

OK, so then all the neighborhood mice and gophers realized our yard was a safe haven since the coyotes can't easily get to them.

So we had to get a small terrier dog to chase away all the rodents.

But he also went after a skunk the other morning and got sprayed.

Such is the circle of life in my back yard.
