    Take them to animal control and tell them what happened. Plus they are neglected so I doubt the owners will get them back.

    You need to call your local police department or animal control officer.

    I know about living in the boonies but even the boonies usually have an animal control officer or some kind of animal shelter. A local vet might be able to give you the proper people to call.

    If there is no "law" to help deal with the situation. Take pictures of the dead cat and whatever other damages were done, then shoot the dogs. You'll have proof of the destruction and most places will consider that protecting your property and livestock. If you can't bring yourself to do that, (I know I couldn't!!) take them to the nearest shelter, even if it's an hour away. It's likely the neighbors won't go get them.

    We have to travel an hour to get to the nearest shelter and the dog warden is 4 hours away....good luck with the dog problem, it sure is a tough problem to deal with.
