I let the dogs out and they began barking at our neighbors direction so I went to get them to stop and lo-and-behold there was a Hawk in their Chicken pen trying to get out.

My wife and I ran over and I held the pen door open and it flew out. We went inside and the chickens seemed fine, but wow. It tore a hole through some netting over the door and got stuck in there. That was amazing seeing that bird of prey so close.

Of course, we have chickens too so just a tad worried with one that aggressive being in the neighborhood.

We also had a chicken coop for 4-5 years. I walked into the nesting room one morning to find a very large hawk sitting in a top corner, and a chicken carcass on the floor. He flew out the door that I entered, and never saw him again. Gotta make sure that the cage portion of the coop is completely tight, they seem to be pretty smart. At least there was no causalities for your neighbor!
