Last week around midnight my cousin came banging on my bedroom door yelling about a dog being on the porch. Well, I grabbed up my grandmother's 22 and ran outsider. As soon as I did I seen this dog with one of our young kittens in its mouth slinging it around like a rag doll. I hollered at it and it dropped the kitten and ran. I shot at it a couple of times and a bullet hit it right in the behind. I thought I just wounded it but my aunt went outside spot lighting because she thought she heard another one. Weell she found it and yes it was wounded but bad. Went back outside put it down. The next day, I check my Facebook and I have like five messages warning me that my neighbors knew it was me and were going to call the police. I brush it off as nothing but late that afternoon two handsome strangers in blue show up. I told them the story and they basically told me what I already knew that I was in the right so no charges could be pressed. The dog may not have gotten into my chicken pen but it would only have been a matter of time. That's not the first dog I've killed of theirs and I hate to do it but the way I see it if you love your dog so much you would either pen it or chain it to keep it off the streets. I'm not going to wait around and see what a roaming dog is going to do before I shoot it. I've lost too many chickens by given strange dogs chances. Do you think I did/do the right thing?
