A LGD isn’t an option at the moment. We are nurturing my ancient Chihuahua who is nearly blind and nearly deaf, and don’t plan on another dog for awhile. Then I would have to convince DH to get a good guardian breed, rather than the collie he desperately wants. He always had collies.
The baby monitor plus shotgun warning shot seems like the easiest approach right now.
In other news, there’s two inches of snow on the ground, and still falling. Happy May, New England!

Yesterday, I lent it to my neighbour who had a bear break into his chicken coop and take two birds. Within hours, the bear returned and squeezed into the coop through the flimsy little door that separated coop and pen. Apparently, he fired off the banger and the bear squeezed back out, the way he entered and hasn't returned, even 24 hours later.

Unfortunately, odds are that it will be back. A bear never forgets a food source. This is now a "fed bear."
