2 of the neighbors dogs are always coming in my yard. We had chickens before and the dogs chased them and I believe killed some of them, although I didn't see it happen. I had asked the owners repeatedly to keep there dogs in their own yard. I live on about 5 acres and I like to let my chickens free range. They were all eventually killed. I now have week old chicks that I will be keeping in an enclosed run because of these dogs. If these dogs come on my property and try to enter the run and kill my chickens, can I shoot them? I would hate to do that, but I will not let them kill my chickens either. The cops don't do crap around here, they don't want to be bothered by anybody with anything. So calling them about the dogs is pointless. Is it legal to shoot the dogs if it came down to it? I live in Pa if that matters any? Thanks!
