Warning, long rant. A neighbor down the road lets her dogs run free. She has a pack of 4 that roam all day. We have two young Pyrenees that usually manage to convince them to stay to the other side of the road, but they still come running by on a daily basis. We managed to save one hen before they killed her, but we estimate we've lost 8 of our flock to these dogs. The little rat terrier will dig under, the largest ones will exploit any loose area. Since we got our own dogs the big ones stay out but it looks like the little ones are still sneaking in. It looks like thsi mornings victim was grabbed though the fence. We found her torn up on on the roadside, but there's a few of her feathers stuck in the wire. The neighbor has been asked on multiple occasions to keep her dogs at home. We have already filed a police report, but that was last year and the police made it very clear they did not appreciate us calling them out on such 'trivial' matters. Best yet, there is no animal control in our county. I am absolutely fed up with this. We are keeping every single 'important' chicken locked up, but our layers are spoiled and refuse to lay when confined to their run. So they're out and at risk because the neighbor is either too incompetent or lazy to fence/leash/house train her dogs and we need them to lay to pay for their feed. We've done almost everything in our power (and defiantly everything we can afford) to do to keep our hens safe, but because of one person's dogs we continue to lose our girls. We can't do anything about the dogs either, since we can never catch them on our property. I hate making animals pay for their owners crimes, but I am just that fed up. These hens are fed soyfree/organic, they're expensive ot raise! Neighbor is never home except at odd hours to feed the dogs so I can't drag a carcass down there to wave in her face. They said that unless we have visual proof it was her dogs we can't ask for damages. So I guess I get to go our there and hide with a camera? End rant. Are there any options to dealing with these dogs? (Besides SSS, I don't have the heart for it- yet.) Better yet, any suggestions for dealing with the owner? She's always so polite and horrified, but never does a dang thing.
