    I live in Southern Georgia. I went to Magistrate Court today, aed with photos, police report, and animal control sitting by my side. My sweet girls, 5 out of 6 of them, we're killed by roaming dogs. It took a month and some sleuthing, but I found out where the dogs lived. The owner surrendered one of the dogs to animal control, the judge fined him $260 for dog at large, attacking, and I got $ 640 cash for restituition. If you have a problem with neighbors dogs, you can hit them in the wallet. My email is Parkerfillion@gmail.com if you want a copy of my statement, which I copied from someone else here, let me know. I'm still stunned that it worked.
