I am pretty tired of stray dogs (and the neighbors dogs) in the neighborhood being in my yard, i live in a fairly rural area on an acre and it's a common issue out here but prior to having birds I didn't really care. I'm not going to kill a dog over getting in my trash but getting in my coop is a different story. So, has anybody set traps up around their coop? I have warned my neighbors politely and told them I had traps down by my coop but I haven't actually set any up, it was my hope that by warning them they would lock their dogs down better which hasn't happened. I respect all live so I would really rather the neighbors just care for their animals in a responsible way but since that isn't happening I'm not sure what to do. I don't want to shoot and kill a dog just for being in my yard but I don't want to wait for it to kill chickens either. So frustrating! I was thinking brightly painted traps may be the answer but then what do I do with a dog that has it's leg broke in a trap? I feel like that isn't really my responsibility to address after letting it out but at the same time my goal is to keep my animals safe not be cruel sooooo.
