We have an outside pit bull...he's on a runner somewhat near the coops. I will willing to chance that he'd nail one of my birds IF it ever was out of its pen and IF he ever got off the runner- neither ever happens due to diligent management. Yesterday AM i woke up at 530 to find him on the porch, scruff up. digging at the back door. He was loose... I went over to my pens and the duck pen ( holding my brand new, exhibition calls and exhibition runner trio) was annihilated. no ducks, one 'puff' of feathers. door pried up from the bottom corner. I figured he MAY have gotten them, but honestly i thought someone stealing them was more likely ( and that is not likely). He has prey drive somewhere in that big blue blockhead of his but honestly the birds he has killed have been licked to death and i find him still liking , holding them and they are usually naked . He wouldnt care enough about them to actually work the door. So i chalked it up to a horrible horrible mystery and hoped my ducks would come back. This morning at 530 my guinea alarm went off and i ran outside. The rottie that my dogs have previously run off was in my pen area and so was a friend- a long haired husky mix. I think they were the ones who got the ducks. SSS is not an option since we do not own a gun- I also do not want to simply maim the dog because im pretty sure that just injuring a dog and not killing it is not legal. I was thinking of posting a flier at the local mom and pop gas station..we only have 5 or so neighbors and they ALL go there. . . I was going to detail that I've lost livestock and Ive seen these dogs and I'd appreciate them being kept at home before i peruse further action. We are zoned agriculture and live in Georgia so I am not sure of the laws and not savvy enough to look them up. I would not mind getting something for my pen that was destroyed ( full hardware cloth sides and door) and the several hundred dollar ducks. I think if we fenced the back part of my coop area off we could trap the dogs in there pretty easily. we dont have animal control but im sure i could get someone to come take them away.
