My neighbor, who has lived her for all his life (40 plus years) and thinks because he lived here all his life, doesn't have to follow rules, left his 2 pit bulls out a little bit ago. Loose in his unfenced yard. They came into my yard and killed my golden campine pullet and black silkie hen. All of the chickens and my pekin ducks are so traumatized. We were finding them hiding in the fields. Now they are huddled in a corner in their run. My daughter ran out of the house screaming. She put herself in harms way and saved the rest of her babies. She chased those dogs down, and said a few curse words (bad ones too), then one turned towards her. I got there just in time. I stood in front of her and they ran off. We called the police. There is nothing they can do. I asked if I could shoot them, if they came back (we have a no firearm discharge law), he said yes. So my Dh is down talking to the neighbor now. I drove down to the neighbors right after the incident, he denied it was his dogs...of course. He did say he would check them for blood. I didn't see blood on the chickens, just looks like they were shaken to death. I have a dog, I am not a dog hater at all. I just wish other people would keep their dogs on leashes. I mean, are dog owners so lazy that they can't put a leash on their dog and actually walk them? I take my dog outside several times a day to do his thing. I also walk him every am, rain or shine. I blame the owner, not the dogs... I would hate to have to shoot an animal because the owner is so neglectful.
