First of all please no bashing or fighting over to pen or free-range. I am just upset. I live on 12.5 acres, out in a rural area, The land across the road is strictly farm land, no homes. I can see the highway from my front porch as the crow flies so to speak and it runs parrallel to my road. We dont have a dog catcher, not required and we have only had a game warden for 6 months in the 12 years I have lived out here. He sadly lost his life in a flood last year. Anyway, most of my animals free range all the time. And I have a few animals. Here is where I get mad, I cant tell you the traffic I will have on my 1 1/2 lane road, that is posted 30 mph and the cars will come flying at 60 and 70 mph. And some of them intentionally hit my birds. They will actually swerve to the side of the road and hit my birds. I saw someone hit one of my guineas today, I tried to follow them but they of course sped away. Now why are people so mean and dumb??? There are dogs, not mine I keep them all on leads, rabbits, squirrels, hogs, cats, chickens, coyotes, cattle all out on these country roads. I have seen cars flipped down the road from my house, not because of my birds, speed and a slight curve in the road. Now we are going to fence off the entire front of the property which will be a big expense. But what is wrong with people? I dont understand, my GK's are not allowed to play in the front part of my property because I worry one of the big rigs will roll into my yard. There is an entrance to an oil well right past my drive and those water trucks fly at night then slam on the brakes to make the turn. I am terrified of going fast on a country road. Around here there are dogs everywhere. And I swear those squirrels from the insurance commercial are up the road. Anyway, I am just sad and upset.
