For the last couple of weeks, a young siberian husky has been showing up, and scratching at the door & window trying to get at my chooks inside. I caught it in a leg hold trap, and because it had tags decided to turn it over to animal control. I also found out that it lived 1 concession over & that the owners had just moved to the area. It has come around a few times since then as well. Yesterday I caught it myself, and drove it home. I explained to the owners that I had chickens on my property and that they needed to keep the dog contained on their own property. The wife just laughed & said that their pooch was a puppy, & wouldn't hurt a fly. The hubby said with all the land around us he would do as he pleased & wasn't gonna let me dictate what he did with his dog. I explained that the only reason I returned the dog in the first place was because it was young & I figured the owner's were new to the area. I said in future I would not be returning the dog. He ordered me off his property & said if I call animal control on his dog again, there will be a price to pay. I smiled & told him that I had no intentions on calling animal control the next time his dog showed up. Well you can guess where this is going, this morning the dog showed up, so I grabbed the shotgun & dispatched it. I was going to call animal control, to come pick up the remains & notify the owners. I think I'm just going to let sleeping dogs lie however.
