    You can, perhaps, hold the dog, call the neighbors, and ask for restitution? You can, perhaps, take the dog to the local humane society yourself the next time you find it in your yard?

    Here in CA (believe it or not) the laws allow you to shoot (to kill, is what my local sheriff told me) animals, including pet dogs, who threaten livestock. Even if they're only at your fence just frightening your animals. That would be because some livestock can be killed just by being frightened such as sheep or rabbits. I would expect most states have such a law on the books. Regardless of the law I'd still shoot the animal if it actually killed one of my livestock. You've got too much invested in your animals. If you have written complaints to the animal control (you should) and even photos of the dog on your property, you shouldn't have a problem. Good luck
