I don't agree with these dogs being put down, but I do agree with the owners taking responsibility for keeping their dogs from getting loose.

Why not? What if it was your animal? Or God forbid, a child? The dogs are dangerous and the owners are stupid jerks and the dogs WILL attack again.

Dogs are still animals. Animals always have animalistic instincts. If the owners were responsible in the first place this wouldn't have happened.

But now that they have attacked another animal, it will be very hard (if not impossible) to keep them from killing again. If the owners didn't take care (keep control) of them in the first place, how are they going to do it now??

My point exactly. They never will control their dogs, so why should the dogs suffer? Poor ownership and the dogs get the punishment...

Thank you, everyone. I just want to make sure I'm not acting out of anger. All I can do is report it, up to the police (?) if they get put down or not. Bottom line is that they should NOT have been on our property, and the owner is responsible for their dogs' actions.

IMO it's too late for the dogs once they have the taste of blood. That's the owner's fault for sure, but I'm not sure there's much that can be done for the dogs, other than to keep them permanently kenneled/leashed. Even then if the improper handling continues, they could easily get aggressive towards a person.

Dear, I know you want to work with your neighbors but this IS a dangerous DANGEROUS situation.

Trust me I know how hard it is... This is my worst ownership/most embarrassing story.

My dogs were accused of killing another dog three miles away. Granted they HAD gotten loose a few days prior, but on the day it happened two of my dogs were put up. My Aussie has a BRIGHT white collar and there was absolutely no evidence. There have been multiple multiple sightings over the years of a mountain lion in the area and the owners were notorious for leaving several bowls of dog food out and would leave their dog unattended for days on end. Out here it could have been coyotes, bears, anything.
My dogs got the wrap because of my slip, MY FAULT.
My neighbors insisted that my dogs were dangerous, deadly, and threatened to shoot them upon sight if they weren't put down or contained.
Of course, I would do the same!
Needless to say my dogs, though this was the first time EVER they had run off, and I believe they went down there to track the lion (or whatever) that had probably been out here scoping my goats, haven't been out of my sight since and locked up every single time I'm not outside.

If I had thought or think now for ONE IOTA of a SECOND my dogs were a danger to livestock or my child, they are dead meat. Period, end of story!
They live/have lived loose with kittens, chickens, horses, goats/baby goats, family dogs visiting, children and NEVER EVER have they even looked cross eyed at one of them.

Unfortunately since your neighbors dogs are proven killers of a larger sweet natured livestock, not just a chicken, that they've been acclimated to somewhat nearby...

They need to go. Or at least be locked up 24/7 in a secure pen.

I see your side...I just hate when dogs get the ultimate punishment for poor handlers. If those dogs were chi's they wouldn't have been able to kill it, but can be just as aggressive. Anyways, it feels wrong debating on this thread. I'm sorry OP I want to squeeze your llama ='(
