I remember another member suggesting the '3 S's' many times - If the vicious/dangerous animal wanders on your property, this practice can be employed. But "SSShhh"! :)

A dog does not "become addicted" to killing other animals. That's basically another way to say once a dog gets a taste of blood they don't stop, which is beyond false.

It's not normal for a dog to just go around killing and eating other animals, especially other dogs. This dog may be having a serious problem, either starving or some medical problem, anything.

I'm ashamed that so many people have a grab-a-gun mentality before anything else.

Call animal control. Call law enforcement. Let them deal with it.

I'd say to take pictures and call animal Control. Has this dog shown aggression towards people? Has he ever hurt your pets?

FLYING WITHOUT WINGS IS POSSIBLE, IT'S CALLED RIDING A HORSE! <3

I'd say it is sad, but animal control can't get out RIGHT away when a dangerous dog is running after livestock and what not.

I know EVERY time a dog wonders onto our property, the first thing my dad does is grab a gun- not to shoot, but because IF a dog is going to chase our horses, our calves, or even our chickens.. but because I would rather not loose, to us expensive, livestock and get the thing chasing, attacking my animals..

hope that makes since

Of the dog comes onto your property your father needs to shoot it. Who can say whether it was after your stock or not.

I do not blame the dog but, it is going to kill stock sooner or later.

Dogs can become killers. I knew of a few that did. They started out as chicken killers then went on from there. They were all shot before it escalated. These dogs were on 3 separate farms.

Check your state laws. In Canada you are allowed to shoot whatever is a threat to your livestock, except hunters.

Call Animal Control and find out what you legally can do. In my case, Animal Control told me to shoot the chicken killer and them call them to come collect and dispose of the body. Thankfully my neighbors immediately re-homed their dog.

Your neighbors don't have to know that you're the one turning them in. Document everything and if you can get pictures or a video then do! After that, you just need to turn everything over to the proper authorities, most likely Animal Control. The more you document, the more likely they are to do something about it. If it doesn't work at first, there's a whole chain of command you can go up until they get their butts in gear with it. (My father-in-law is a former Director of Animal Control). If the dog has ever bitten a person, most states have a certain bite limit per dog and if they reach that limit, they get put down without a second glance. They key is for people to report such goings on but most of the time they don't.
