So I get a frantic call urging me to come home as my son and wife are fighting off a couple "bully breed" dogs. I am not a dog hater we have a nice bully breed of our own. However they attacked my flock killing all but one bird right in front of my son and wife. They were able to chase them off and were luckily not attacked themselves. I arrived home to my son holding one of the last dying hens begging me to save her. We started this project with 2 at risk kids that were living with us. It gave them something to care about other than themselves and their problems. It worked well. Our hopes were to be fully organic and supply our family with organic eggs. It has gone really well and we loved the birds and the eggs. Animal control caught the dogs, they were roaming the local grocery store a mile away. (looking for more chicken?) We identified them and they assured us that they would be fined. They did mention that they would need to pay restitution. How do you put a price on hard work, loss of the hens, no organic eggs for over a year, my sons hobby destroyed, and the trauma and stress of witnessing his pets being killed? I dont blame the dogs, they do what is natural. But their owners need to be accountable. How do I put a price on this?
