I do have cameras, many of them actually. I could replay the entire video from multiple streams. I don’t think it’s worth suing. The price of a chicken is…kinda of a joke. Now that it is warmer weather, people are letting their dogs out to roam. Out here we have acres. I have 7 acres, the neighbors directly next to me have about 10, and across from me they have like 80. I don’t know whose dogs the first two were…the Labrador and terrier mix, and didn’t find out. I’ve not seen them before nor since…and these beagles came from so dang far away it boggles the mind. But I do know that several people out here just let their dogs and cats loose.
Apparently the guy that came to get the dogs said something like his wife was in Chicago with maybe a daughter having a baby or something…I kinda blanked out. The dogs were no doubt left in a yard or something and got loose. Beagles do that. Must have happened before since they had tracking collars.
I can’t afford to, nor want to, fence in our 7 acres. The price for a fence is ludicrous. After the last attack I kept the chickens inside their run for a couple days but honestly they produce way more eggs when they get to free range and they are happier and take care of our lawn. Before I was allowing them 4 hours a day, then I figured I would only allow 2 after the first attack.
Somehow I didn’t hear any of the barking or squawking. I don’t even know how. My husband kinda wanted to press for some kind of remuneration for the chickens but I just waved it off. Were it not for us they probably would never have found their dogs since they were all this way out here.
I guess there is just no way to free range them despite all the land.
And now my son has become suddenly terrified of dogs even though he was raised with a dog in our home all his life until a year ago.
I lost Gobi, Stir-Fry, and Pikipek, half of my current laying flock. I still have my rooster, The General, one Easter Egger (Nugget), and two other Brahma hens (Kentucky Fried and Sir Robin).
