    Hmm . . . I have to say the owners seem overly paranoid, or else simply ignorant of the fact that there's no way chicken wire could withstand roaming dogs. It looks like the dogs just busted through that flimsy stuff. They would put their time to better use if they quit trying to pin the "crime" on someone and went out to buy some decent material for rebuilding their coop.

    Some people will just never get it, only worth $10 & just food. [​IMG]
    Like any other pet you get out of them what you put into them, why are their dogs not just food? People in Asia eat them al the time...Dogs running at large is NOT got for anyone let alone the dogs! [​IMG]

    Just wish [​IMG] this kind of story wasn't so common! [​IMG]

    she used plain old chicken wire. No one cut the wire. That stuff is easily tore through by anything bigger than a house cat. a doberman and lab would get through that stuff easily. Maybe she should have come here and asked what to use before building her coop /run/fence out of flimsy material.
