A bear could attack. It all depends on what the food is like for the bear at that point. Or if the horse threatens the bear/her cubs at all.
Coyotes scare me. We had a pack of them, very close to us this spring. I contacted the DNR about it. They were "so helpful"...NOT. I came to the conclusion, anyone I see threathening my animals...will meet a bullet. DNR did say they don't stay in one spot long typically, and a few weeks later, they were gone. Havent seen signs of then in awhile.
Years ago, I rounded the backside of my barn, in the horse pasture and came 10 feet away from a coyote. We stared at eachother, I was freaked out, but it turned tail and ran. Thank God.
