    Unhappy Neighbor's dogs killed our llama

    Our neighbors have several Great Danes that escaped this morning and attacked Harold. They're jump and try to bite when I unlatch the gate on the shared fence, but I never dreamed that they'd actually kill one of our animals. It's a shame that Harold had to pass this way. He was being taught to ground drive and I had hoped to have him drive cart one day.

    Rest peacefully in little llama heaven, Harold

    Poor poor Harold! I'm so sorry. RIP sweetie.

    What are you going to do about it?

    Oh no :( What a terrible thing to have happen. I am very sorry for your loss.

    I'd definitely call the police and report that roaming dogs killed your livestock. Your neighbors need to compensate you for the loss of your animal, and they need to learn a hard lesson about letting their dogs roam. It's a good way to get your pets injured or killed.

    I would be enraged! I'd be at their house, with meat and bones of Harold in my hand insisting they pay and letting them know you will shoot their dogs if the come on your property again.

    Thank you guys so much. He was only about a year old, but he had a good life while he was with us. My dad collects guns so we're covered in that area, if they go after the horses. Both Zeus and Lemonade are very very well behaved around dogs, so I'm afraid they wouldn't react fast enough. The dogs run back and forth along our fence and bark any time I'm out doing groundwork or riding.

    She said she would help us get a new one, and she seemed genuinely upset.

    There's few things I hate more than a neighbor with barking dogs that make use of your own property a drag.
    Sorry, mini rant there.

    It's irritating. They've had probably 5-7 dogs the whole time we've lived next to them, always barking all night. Cookout? Bark bark bark. Taking a walk? More barking. Ugh.

    Set up a recording of dogs barking, loudly and put it as close to their windows as you can. It will make their dogs bark incessantly and eventually, the dogs will tire and quit. One would hope.

    Put up one of these along the fence line. It just may help.
