First pay for the sheep. Then get rid of the dog
You cannot un teach killing behavior, the animal will kill again so it is on you
What would you do ig that sheep was a kid? Or what would you do if your neighbors dog killed your dog? Exactly.
That's a tough situation because Im scared that if the dog got a taste of blood it will not be vicious. But to keep a decent situation with your neighbor you should offer to replace the sheep if she declines and takes you to court over it, let the judge know that you offered to replace it and she declined.
sounds like if it got to court the judge would say, "you knew she had a dog, why were your sheep on her property?"... the neighbor is being unreasonable in my estimation.
I'd still offer nonetheless.
Call Cesar Millan.
take it to a pitbull specific trainer or it's not gonna end well
Rightfullly she should. You neglected to take care of your pet and it hurt someone else. Regardless if it was her pet (to which there is emotional attachment to.) or if it was a source of food for her, you hurt her and her family. You can offer to buy her a new one but, you're responsible if your dog is vicious. I'm assuming, however, that your dog went to where her sheep was kept, either pinned up or on a leash.
Eat him. Sheep are delicious.
Oh bummer. They could press charges. Hell, you could get fined for harboring a viscous animal and failure to control. That sucks.
Kill it before it kills again.
I got to be the Family Henchman.. It's wild how fast a nuisanse animal drops with a .22 to the head.
I'm a farmer I've just had 3 sheep in a week killed all worth over £1000 each if I catch the dog that has done this it won't get a second chance with me it's getting shot
Point at him and say baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad dog!
I've been reading the answers and your responses. You know the laws of your country better than those of us outside:
Did the neighbour's sheep wander onto your property ? Where I live that would put the onus on your neighbour; your dog was protecting your land.
On the other hand, if your dog wandered onto the neighbour's property and attacked the sheep, then you would be expected to make restitution. Whether or not anything happened to the dog would depend on the state (here).
In the first scenario, the dog didn't do anything wrong, so there would be nothing to do with him, unless you worry he might attack a person, then training, or keeping him secured at night might be necessary.
In the second scenario, again training, but it would be imperative lest he become a danger and have to be put down.
Okay, based on that, I don't see how your neighbour feels he has any grounds to sue. Did you put up a fence after the neighbour shot your goat ?
oh, in that case I take back what I said. If the sheep was on your property, I don't believe you should do anything.
If you can prove it was on your property let him sue you should win
Get rid of the dog, and do your best to smooth things over. Pray your efforts will be blessed.
train the dog better! I have only met 1 mean pit in my entire life. They are generally nice dogs, but they do need a lot of training. definitely pay for the sheep though.
Digg a hole in your backyard and dispose over the body. Make sure there no witnesses, that's what a real best friend would do. Oh and never talk about it,again.
Put some of the sheep’s blood over your face and kneel down in front of him so he can rip your face to pieces and deliver justice upon the person who is actually responsible for causing that terrible end to the life of the poor defenceless sheep.
Or you could just have it put down.
Well you didn't say His sheep was on your property... Well if thats the case then your neighbour will not be able to sue you. I would offer to pay him the cost of the sheep though, just to diffuse the situation.
You use the wool for a coat or something.
You mean the dog? Train it.
Get him a leash...
