I think it's essential that this whole thing get reported and that you notify the owner of t he dogs in writing so that when you inevitably have to shoot the dogs, you're covered legally. My experience has been that once dogs kill an animal, they will do it again and there's very little to be done to stop it other than containing them.

Tinyliny- I'll try it next time they're barking. Worth a shot.
Franknbeans- I've never seen one of those, I wonder how it works. Maybe it senses a loud sound (bark), then puts out a high-pitched sound? I'll look into it.
Viranh- I think I might. I know we're not perfect neighbors, and neither are they. I don't want anything bad to come down on them, but I want to be covered legally, in case it happens again. I did look it up, you can shoot a dog if you see it attacking livestock. Not sure about them just being on your property. I'll keep it in mind.

If they're on your property and you have livestock, particularly in light of recent events, you can most likely claim to be protecting livestock. Depends on your area though, as in how agricultural/rural it is. Also whether your neighbors are related to the police or something. (This is a problem we've actually had). Good that you've looked up what's legal in your state since it does vary.

Definitely in an agricultural area. I don't know why I've had such bad luck with neighbors lately! One side abandoned their horse when they moved, and now this. I feel like I have to choose my battles pretty wisely with them. They're a retired couple that donate a lot to the city programs. She agreed to pay for another llama. I lost three or four chickens last year, we thought a coyote got after them. Now I'm not so sure. I'll be keeping a close eye on them, that's for sure.

So sorry for your loss......

It is nice that she offered to pay for a new Llama, but that is not nearly enough, her dogs need to be put down as aggressive animals, what will they go after next time, a child?

These dogs need to go to a place where this will NEVER happen again - if it was my animal they killed they might be going there too ...please phone the police and save other innocent animals from their torture.

There is SUCH a difference between barking and attacking and killing someone else's property. My two dogs run the inside of the OPEN SE cattle fencing when our neighbors take walks, and these are often people several blocks away. I have worked with them to stay ON MY PROPERTY, but I won't discourage them from barking. Just last summer salesman were walking door to door trying to sign you on the spot to change power service. One super pushy guy IGNORED my dogs and walked right up on me--Man, I wish I had had my gun on me!! Most of the time my neighbors know that Rose is friendly, and they just scowl at Pgy (not immediately friendly).
BUT, my dogs do NOT attack other people's animals.
Your neighbors ARE at fault. Dogs will only do what they are trained to do and if not punished for bad behavior they WILL repeat it.
