    This is getting so old. I am tired of going to court for the dangerous/potentially dangerous dog cases. I spent over $400 making my pasture dog and coyote proof only to suffer dog attacks from little dogs. Totally peeved off that the trailer court I live next to can not enforce the county leash law and fine the irresponsible dog owners. I have almost two acres of fenced pasture to free range my chickens on and instead they are locked in their run. I am saving for deer netting to run across half of the pasture on the fence line, but it is still over 600 feet of netting. At least the neighbor saw it and threw rocks at the dogs so nothing was killed this time :(

    So sorry! I would get electrified poultry netting from Premier. And go after the dog owners, and eliminate the offending dogs. Trap and shoot? SSS? Jerks who let their dogs roam will get more dogs, so consider that electric netting. Mary
