A dog jumped our fence and broke into our chicken runa and killed each and every one of of 10 chickens. Caught the dog, called the owner, she agreed to compensate and gave us a check, which was unsigned, and we were too upset to notice. She of course now won't pay.
Called animal control 3 days ago, no answer. Called a few lawyers and no one deals with dog-chickens, only human injury. I checked our neighborhood association posts and this dog was loose many times before, found and returned to owner. It's not only dangerous to other animals but also itself can be hurt by cars, etc. I don't think that the owner is fitting to have a dog but animal contro is not doing anything. Shall my birds just dye in vain? What can I do??
