My people, I just read about that dog that almost killed the RIR and I thought I would write about my tragedy. I haven't been able to come here and talk about my loss but now I feel some strength. Last saturday I was sitting in my living room with my teen age daughter. We were doing school work since we are both in school. I heard my dog bark and since he barks at everything we ignored him. What we didn't know was that two dogs had arrived in my yard. My chicken were having fun outside. We always let them out when we are home because my husband is usually outside doing stuff. Well, he was picked up by his brother to help him with something. I heard a knock at the door and it was a couple that likes to walk on our street. She said there was a dog killing my chickens, I ran outside and one of them disappeared but the other one, which is my neighbour's, from across the street, was busy killing. She had a big rooster in its mouth, I hit her with a big stick and she let go but he was dead. When the dogs left I saw four lying dead. Later I saw the dog with one its mouth crossing the street running home, I think she hid that one and crossed the street and picked another one from somewhere she had hidden another one. Thats when I lost my mind and I went to them and told them their dog is killing my chicken. They denied it. I opened the door under their porch and there she was with one of my chickens. These people did not even apologise, infact when I left, I heard some chuckles. I turned and I told them, '' if that dog ever lands on my yard I'll shoot her dead' I went home and called animal control, they came and I recorded a statement then they went to that house. Sorry for writing too much but I feel like sharing helps. Six of my beautiful chickens dead. The rooster was a nice humble pretty one. Thanks for your time. By the way the following day the dog came back looking for the chickens.
