Going to call the sheriff again tomorrow to see what else can be done. Don't worry I don't believe in rock salt or bb guns for protection and we do everything in our power to make it a quick stopping shot, but on the other hand I'm going to do everything it takes to make the animals stop doing what theyre doing and if they present me a less then perfect shot I'm still going to feel inclined to take it (of course I finish it off if given the chance). They wont take them to a vet, one of the dogs struck we actually found with the cop still alive at the edge of the property line, they picked it up and didn't vet it so of course it died a few hours later. Last thing I want are for these things to suffer, they're the ones paying the ultimate price.
I can't get pictures, but I think if I can push the vaccination topic that's going to be the best way to get outside help for these dogs. I can see hot wiring the horses area as being realistic, but going only that route I would then have to hotwire the dogs area, I free range my birds so I would have to pen them up and wire them, as well as any lambs or pigs we may want in the future... I see it getting to be a very expensive solution to the problem and I really don't want to have all these wired pens around the yard when I shouldnt have to in the first place.
