The worst thing happened to me last year with my sex-links. I saw the dog chasing my birds, but i didn't manage catch the dog. I decided to fix the fence and pray it didn't get back in. Well, i was good until one night (about a year later) my grandparents came for a visit and didn't close the gate. The overly persistent dog got in and killed 2 of my ducks (the chickens had gone to bed). When i asked my neighbor he claimed it wasn't his dog. (he feeds it and it only comes to him but 'it isn't his dog) He refused to pay me anything. Animal Control told me that unless i actually stood there and watched the dog kill it there was no proof that that dog had done the evil deed. I'm against shooting dogs, but if no one will take responsibility for the brute and animal control won't take it, what do i do?
