This last week I had a dog terrorizing my chickens and eating my barn cat food.  Yesterday I hung a coyote snare in a path I stomped out in the snow going to the hen house and this morning my problem was solved.

Proud!!!! seriously!!!  About 6 or 7 years ago I had 2 huskies break in and kill about 75 laying hens.   The county had to pay to replace them because we have a dog ordinance and the animals were never caught.    I had to prove it was dogs and not coyotes.  Not tough to do because in there excitment killing my stock one throw up dog food in the hen house.   Then a couple of years later a single dog killed about a doz  I take care of my own and if this dogs owner did the same I wouldn't be typing this.  I didn't kill it.  I neck snared it with a relaxing lock and no intanglement near.  The dog is now at animal control and with the attitude it has it will never leave.

Dogs, domestic or the wild type (wolves,coyotes) are shot on site around here when they are caught chasing livestock or deer.  I don't put up with it.

In my county you are animal control. If you feel sorry (and who wouldn't?) for a stray dog and feed it, it then becomes your dog. My sister got fined because she had fed two or three strays. If you feed it you must get them vaccinated.

It seems that where I live at is a dumping area for unwanted cats and dogs. Mainly cats. If they aren't took care of then disease and destruction are your results. When I was a teen it was much worse. Back then (70s) I drove to a swimming hole. You had to park and walk. When I parked I counted 13 dogs who were being aggressive toward my truck. I turned around, went back home and got my .22 but they were gone. The area was also a dumping place for someone.

you'd end up in jail here if you shot one for chasing deer, livestock might be a different story.  if a dog has a collar and looks well fed he's getting a free pass from me if he isn't killing an animal.  some times well cared for dogs get out and it's their nature to hunt.  a repeat offender may not be as lucky.

We have the same laws here for deer.   Stock on the other hand is different.  As I stated above the county has a very old law on the books that if dogs kill and the owner cant be found they pay for replacment out of the dog lic fund.  when I had the 75 bird massacre they bought 75 new chicks.  The birds that were killed were first year pullets.   I got to feed 75 chicks for 5 months to get eggs again

I had a pasture that bordered a subdivision and would constantly get there leaves, limbs, dead flowers, dead shrubs, rocks, and everything else across the fence. It all would get tossed back over and I would try my best to hang it up in their tree limbs so they would get the message. One house started throwing their dog crap across the fence, and I mean big loads of it. I just figured if it was OK to pitch poo one way it would bee OK to pitch poo the other way, except I did not have a dog so I just had to pitch cow pies. After about an hour my arms were getting tired and their pretty backyard was well fertilized anyway. Message received!

Country life don't mean you get to let your dog run loose.

funny that this comes up.  the turkey all vanished from my place 5 or 6 weeks ago but a group of dogs keeps showing up on my trail cam.  i've been trying to figure out where they belong.  well, my feist likes to go across a road and not check back in lately.  always in the same direction.  last time he was about to go through a gate onto someone's property when i found him.  well, when i stopped at the end of their drive and told him to get in the truck here comes the pack of dogs with teeth showing and their hair up.  they weren't just not scared of me when i yelled at them, i thought they were going to attack.  i'm not scared of dogs and will usually pet a strange dog but these dogs meant business.  i'm pretty sure my dog is trailing them back to their place.  not sure how to handle this just yet.  i have a couple of neighbors that i know will shoot them if they see them running deer (one might if he just sees them).

Good luck with the owners of those untrained dogs.  I always pack heat for just an encounter.  Some people have no responsibility!

In my opinion they are primal when they come at you. Kill all of them before someone's child is mauled. That just happened not far from here. It wasn't a pack. I think it was just one or two. That's all it took. They buried the child recently.

My bad 10framer. I was thinking you were around your field or something.

Never heard of the law of 3 S's term before. I have to borrow that. I normally shoot, chunk in the back of the truck, head down a dirt road, then chunk again. I have an idea; The law of 3 chunks; Chunk some bait, Chunk in the truck, and Chunk on the side of the road.

 grin we have that in Sweden also, some reindeer herders got tiered of wolves killing their livestock so they shot the wolves, and buried them.

They were tagged with radio transmiters, one tag got put on the back axel of a logging truck that drove up and down the interstate  grin

The other tag found its way into a lifeboat on a luxury liner that sailed between Sweden and Finland.  rolleyes grin

LOL   And then as you drive away you accidentally get them with the back tire.  Makes it look like a accident.   I never did that

I have a Borzoi (Russian Wolfhound) that thought chasing the neighbor's horses was a good idea - Mr Shock Collar took care of that. I have had people say "That's so cruel!"  My response is that it is much less cruel than the front of a Ford F250 or the end of a gun.  My dog, my responsibility to keep him home.

A while back a couple dogs came to the screen door risen a ruckus trying to get our little dog.
finally chased it off. the wife wasn't home then.  and a neighbor walking his bull dog (but shorter).
so went out to tell of the attack.
while I was explaining, they came back and attacked his dog. ripped him up we both were fighting these two dogs off and still damaged the small bull dog on the leash.
many of my neighbors *** ****s and did not come to our aid even though later they stated they herd the commotion. dog got stitches cops were called. never found the nastties.
next time I'll kill them on the spot
