O.k folks I'm needing some help an dadvice here. About an hour and a half ago I heard my dog barking and yelling. I thought she may be after a squirrel in the tree so I went to check and found the neighbors goats had it's head stuck in the fence and my dog had attacked it. She riped the ears off of it. and bite it in the throut. I ran up and hit the dog off of the goats and protected the goat with my body to keep it safe and get the dogs calmed down. I grabbed the dogs and dragged them to my moms house to get some help and my mom took her inside. I put my on the chain and made the boys stay on the porch. My mom called the neighbor and she came out and helped get the dog out of the fence. She was taking the goat back to her place and I went over and helped her take care of the goat. As she was going inside to get some meds. she said she was going to call the sheriff but when she came out she said she called her daughter. I was trying to keep calm while she was telling me everything her daughter said (her daughter is sue happy) When I came back to our place and told my parents everything. Since the sheriff is an old family freind of theirs mmy dad said to go ahead and call the constable and ask his advice. Talking to the constable he said theres not much they can do because my dog didn't jump the fence and their animals was basically on this land when attacked. Also goat put their head through the fence all the time anyway. Which I know from our goats. He said the most they can do is take us to civil court. I told him we are going to offer to pay market price for the goat or give her one of our little girls. He said if we do that then she shoud give us the little injured goat. Also said something about that if we do that not much can happen in the court room because we will be making it fair. Have any of you ever gone through this? What happened with you?
