I was sick to hear what happened to you, I hope things have calmed down some. And you are doing well. We never had dog pack problems at our farm in Mo just coyotes. Since the goats and chickens were running in 1/2 acre pen we strung electric fence on the outside all the way around 10 inches from the ground and then at about 3 1/2 feet. This kept the coyotes from getting close enough to jump the fence, the insulators hold the wire away from the fence far enough that even digging under the fence would be a problem. and for hawks we strung wire about 8- 4(at fence) foot from the ground and criss crossed it so a hawks wing span would not fit between them, they spooked the goats and killed chickens. Then tied mylar strips from the wires, looked like a party all the time but kept the beasties out. Good Luck with Papa !! Things do get better with time :)
