Dog killed my chickens, I killed the dog  

post #1 of 356
Thread Starter 

A bull dog came up in my yard, killed 19 of my chickens and I had to take care of one other one because it's back was split wide open. I killed the dog. Shot it dead. I was so mad I was shaking and crying at the same time. I called the sheriff's office and filed a report and animal control came to get the dog. The owners met animal control at the end of my driveway and animal control allowed them to have their dog back so they could take care of the body.
I lost 20 birds and I have one other missing that I can't find the body or the live bird.

I lost:
Cuckoo Marans
Salmon Faverolle
Mille Fluer d'Uccle
Rhode Island Reds
Jersey Giants
Chocolate colored game hen
Buff Orphington

Oh, I'm so sorry.. and I'm shaking with anger for you! Good for you. I hope these people are going to compensate you monetarily, though they can never compensate for your experience in having your pets slaughtered or in having to kill their dog. When will dog owners ever learn?!

They came to the house but I was home alone and scared to answer the door. These were mostly 8-12 week old chicks that I hateched in my incubator but some were about a year old.

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear about your loss. It is always hard to lose a pet and then to have to shoot the dog afterwards. Good for you though, you took care of the problem. Hopefully those people will not get another dog and let it run loose as well. People make me so angry, then they turn around and say well they are just chickens. somadrant To us they are not JUST chickens. I would definately be asking for some compensation.

I'm taking them to small claims court.
I'm gonna ask for a a few hundred dollars
That is what makes me mad too, is the comment, "They are just chickens".
