    Two new roving dogs that have shown up in the last few weeks. Another stupid neighbor I suppose moved out from the city letting their dogs roam the countryside. This never ends well.

    If you can see them through your lense, you can see them through your scope.

    If that black one is a Rottweilder, mercy that other one is huge. They are good looking dogs. Why not keep um and train, train, train?

    If they attack and chase your chickens then the only way is to shoot'em dogs

    They're beautiful and it's obvious their owners don't want them. I'd say they'd become mine...

    Shot 'em and get rid of them before they kill you're chickens.

    I would certainly make it known to those that live close by that there are some new and strange dogs investigating your chicken coop and that you feel badly but would be totally within your rights to shoot and kill any canines that come onto your property and attack or threaten your livestock....

    Just sayin'.

    Did you call the dogs and see what happens? I see one has a collar on, maybe they will come to you and you can see who they belong to, call animal controll, try to do something else before you kill them. If you can't I understand and I'm not saying don't shoot if they get after your chickens I'm just saying try something else first. If you get them maybe you could tie them up. See if they are friendly first. If not you know what you have to do.
