Well I've spent the past two hours this morning keeping a eye on a big black stray dog that keeps wandering between my property and the neighbors. My chickens are safe because their pen has hotwire around the outside, the doe with 2 week old kids are still locked inside this morning. The only thing at slight risk are the big goats out back, because I've got field fence with no electric, but the tubular gate would probably be easily dug under. A couple times I've seen the big goats take off runningup towards the barn, so I know the dog has approached the fence where they were laying. He's done nothing aggressive, just wandering around, but sure makes me nervious. My Aust. Shepard is inside the front pasture and hasn't noticed him yet or he'd be barking his head off. Does anyone else have problems with stray dogs? This is the third one in the past week, probably doesn't help that my neighbor has three female house dogs and none are spayed. I decided that as big of a animal lover as I am there may be a situation where I would have to take matters into my own hands and shoot someones pet if it was aggresively going after my goats. Don't like the idea, but I'd be able to do it. Maybe I'll have to put electric fence all the way around my big pasture, kind of a pain but would reduce the worry. Called animal control last week and they will not come out for a stray, but said I could catch it and bring it in to them, which doesn't seem real helpful.
