    And all that happens whether you're convicted or not.

    Then if you are convicted, you're going to spend a big part of your life regretting your actions. Not to mention a pretty good civil suit.

    Choose wisely.
    That's very wise advice.

    A friend of mine had a couple of his dogs running at large after escaping from his fenced yard (country ). Finally he added the invisible fence and they still continued to escape while he was at work. He was warned on the first occasion, fined on the second occasion the third and final occasion his two dogs were shot and killed by a local farmer because they killed some of his sheep. He also had to pay the court cost as well as the cost to replace the sheep. Lesson learned even though he made numerous attempts to secure his two huskies.

    Yes Duck' - if you get caught - but getting caught is nearly impossible if you know what you are doing - you shoot a dog in the woods somewhere how is anyone going to prove that you did it unless they actually see you - and even if the owner somehow sees you do it you can always say that the dog attacked you - its his word against yours and his dogs were on your property - and maybe he was also - it boils down to this simple fact - if you own a dog(s) for Pete's sake keep it under control - for the dogs sake

    I guess it comes down to integrity.

    He doesn't have to prove anything to take the law into his own hands. You should consider that before you take the law into yours.

    On another note entirely, I'm sure antis would love to go through the posts on this board at times, counting up the number of people who advocate either breaking firearms laws or using their firearms to break the law.

    The first problem is bringing it here. THis is a very simple problem to take care of. We didn't have that problem where I lived

    The only real problem with taking the law into ones own hands, is that it may invite some type of reprisal. I recall a farmer who had a sheep farm, he use to take shots at offending dogs with a goose gun. One day his sheep were pasturing along the shore of a bay and someone roar past in a motorboat and fired a broadside or two into his sheep flock. The old adage stands, " what goes around comes around." That why it is better to let the proper authorities deal with the manner.

    Very wise indeed....

    We have a neighbour (also a hunter) who shot one of our camp dogs 18 yrs ago because it chased a deer on his property, while he was hunting.

    Nothing legally or illegally was ever done...but the guy has been 'Persona non grata' for the past 18 yrs. Word spread and everyone knows what he did. He has been effectively shunned by everyone. He can't get help from anyone locally, no one will do any work for him or help him out.

    It may not sound like much to you, if you live in the city/burbs, but when you live in a rural area and a farmer to boot, it can make life difficult and memories are very long out here.

    Actually, they do, but I'm not sure how or why.
