One of my pet peeves is people who over react to predators. There seems to be a lot of them on BYC. Today I got a chance to walk the walk. I have a neighbor who moved out from the city and brought his attitude with. Today I caught his two big black labs chasing my chickens around. Luckily I saw what was about to happen and was able to prevent any bloodshed. Now I had a chance to practice what I preach and was able to talk to my moody neighbor and get the situation taken care of. He was apologetic and promised to keep his dogs under control which he nearly always does. I know how attached we all can get to any pet so for me I had no choice other than to try and talk it over first and I'm glad I did. Now he has been warned and I will be justified if I have to take drastic measures.
