I'm sorry about your loss. 😪 Before you shoot the dogs you should give your neighbors a fair warning.
I'd tell them that their dogs killed your livestock and if they show up at your house again you will be forced to shoot them.

I contacted the animal controls and chief of police he’s a friend of the family they said the will do something tomorrow just don’t know what I don’t expect much from them .

I’ve been reading the state laws about livestock ownership and rights of theowner and everything I read says I have all the rites to protect my live stock and self and I also have a 8 year old that is always by the pen loving on them and stuff I don’t want her being attacked

If the dog tried to bite you, you probably have more leverage with animal control. It has killed livestock and attacked a person and would definitely be considered a dangerous dog. If the people are as negligent with their animals as you say, they may be the sort to deny that it's their dog or dogs at all to avoid fines or charges. That makes it easier for animal control to take charge of the loose dogs as strays.

I don't know about the tactic of not involving authorities. People get very confrontational about their animals and about being told someone wants their dog put down. If you and your remaining animals are in danger it's better to get it taken care of than have an angry neighbor coming after you because you "took care" of their dog on your own.

Yeah that’s the position I’m in last thing I need is to get in some kissing match and things get out of hand and they hurt my animals in retaliation and liek I said they have been reported to the cops and ani mal control.

Supposedly they are going to the dogs owner and address it .Its just so sad ,a completely senseless act of cruelty to animals that I cared and loved and hell of a lot . I literally do the dude from across the yard and just wanted to have it out with him but I know it won’t bring back my babies or the connection we had .
