So my neighbour has been losing lambs :/ different guy to the one with the mauled sheep. I thought at first it was birds of prey as he said they were simply disappearing, but then he found one with bite marks on its head.
My quiet harmless wouldn't know what to do in a pack dog (brain damaged, thick as two short planks, but very sweet) has been wandering unbeknownst to us and said neighbour saw her at his place and came over and accused her of hurting his sheep... I seriously doubt it is her, she honestly doesn't even snap at flies, but we've put the electric collar on her anyway. If the disappearing lambs continue to disappear, we'll know it's not her. If it stops, then we've nipped the issue in the bud. Neighbour is happy, dog is contained. We never thought she would wander, she honestly never used to be brave enough...
Yep I have been quick to jump on other owners for not keeping their dogs in an area they can't physically get out of, and yep, two of my three are exactly the same... difference is, one is too old to go anywhere, one I thought was too timid, and the third has an electric collar that zaps the poop out of her if she tries.
A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE
