    I walked outside this morning to feed the chickens and I see most of them run up to me I instantly knew something was very wrong. I run out to the pen only to find the gate tore up and a trail of dead bittys inside the pen plus the mamma and my RIR were missing [​IMG] looks like dogs....I got a pretty good idea who's dogs they are I'm gonna call the sheriffs office today.

    RIP: Scalett, Blondie, and all the babies

    I know exactly how you feel. I've had more than my share of attacks by neighbors stray dogs. Now I live in a fortress of 6ft privacy fencing due to a lack of responsiblity by my neighbors and the absolute sorriest dog pound in the world.
