I am so incredibly sick of irresponsible people! There isn't a person within a mile of me who contains their dogs! In five years we've had a few attacks on our chickens. Each time the responsible owner has been contacted and let known what the dogs have done. Most people are horrified to find out their dog has killed a chicken. We usually do not see those dogs again. I'm venting here because the worst people who do not contain their dogs are our neighbors directly across the street. We really like these people they're about the only neighbors that we speak to. The wife totally gets on my nerves and does not believe that their dog should be contained. She thinks that we should lock our chickens up and let her dog around wherever it wants to. They have gone through three dogs in five years because they run away. I have gotten into more fights with her about loose dogs than anything. She complains about other peoples dogs running loose and dismantling there in her yard but thinks it's okay what her dog is in my yard. Are dogs have not been locked up in our house for two months. The only time we can let them out and their completely fenced and electrified yard is when we are home. We used to leave them out but had to stop because of other peoples dogs running loose and coming on our property and are dogs got out and killed them. Are dogs are Anatolians and are here to protect our chickens. But since I can't keep other people from letting their dogs loose I have to leave mine locked up because they will leave the property if they get out of the fence. So even in the house when we are gone there is cardboard blocking my front windows so the dogs can't see out. They are confined to one room. There is a sliding glass door to the deck where they can see into the backyard. Just so you know - I have a video surveillance system on our house and yard so I know what happens around here. So anyway - today. Neighbors soon lets his dogs out. One is a smaller fog and the other is supposively a wolf hybrid. I'm at work of course. So his dogs come over here and chase the chickens. Of course my dogs hear the commotion and go crazy. SOMEHOW they freaking managed to open the sliding door to the deck. OMG! So on the video you see one of the neighbors dogs catch a chicken. Grrrr! My dogs are going insane because they can't get to the trespassing dogs. Then you see on the video the neighbors son come outside and call the dogs. One runs home with my chicken in his mouth. I get home and figure out what happened. Called the dad of the family because he is the only one with any sense. He's mad but doesn't say anything. I told him I want his son to reimburse my daughter for the chicken. It's been hours and we haven't heard anything more from them. One things for sure. Their dogs don't get another chance. I am so freaking glad we are moving!!!!!!!!!
