    Quote:There won't be an 'again'. I am overly protective(take a look at my BYC page - 'duck-house'. I was letting them free range and exercise in our side yard. I checked them every 20 minutes. The fenced yard and barn is very secure. The dogs got lucky and I was extremely unlucky...

    Sorry for your losses.Hope you can track the owners. I would go door to door and try to ID the dogs.I know you can not get compensated just on the word of a neighbors description,but I would want to know who owned them. Or just shoot them next time(there will be one) and leave at the side of the road for the owners to find when they come looking for them!
