Stop talking down to me because you think Im younger than you.
And when a dog attacks your child at a time when you're there with a weapon I'm sure you're going to worry about the well being of the dog?
I've had dogs attack a horse, and draw blood. I've shot same dogs later when they made the mistake of coming after my horse when I was going out to hunt, so I had a shotgun with me at the time. And while the shot didn't kill the dog I hit (number 6 field shot), it was just because I a light round for the hunting I was doing. And dog that my mare kicked didn't die only because she caught him on the side and not the head. Owner called cops. I showed deputy my horses rear pastern and that was the end of his questions for me. Funny, I never saw those dogs out on that dirt road again. Probably shoud have gone hunting down there earlier and taken care of it before any horses got bitten to begin with.
No, it's not the dogs fault, it's the owners. But if the owners are not willing to maintain their dogs safely then they must accept what happens.
If my dogs had no manners, were allowed to run loose and killed any of a neighbors stock then I'm liable. If my neighbor kills my dog to protect his stock then he's perfectly correct in doing so. People who are going to own animals have to learn and accept the obligations that comes with owning that animal. If not, then don't own one.
