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 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
