another dog shooting story from Fl. This nut job really did it good, shot two hounds with GPS tracking collars hid the collars and gun in his house and said he had nothing to do with it. Sheriff got search warrant, man goes to jail and looking like he is going to get a felony. The world has changed.

This pretty much sums up all you need to know if you want to kill dogs legally on your property. I put "shooting dogs in Florida" in a Google search and haven't found the story, could you pass a link on please. I'm always interested in this dog issue. We've had a few good trouble free years now so it's probably only a matter of time .

I am on several Squirrel hunting and Mountain Cur dog sites that is where I first got the info but I had a hard time verifying it seem no one wanted to say what state or county it was in and no one had a court docket number. I kept researching and found it by Googling ''man shoots 2 hunting dogs'' found it happened on Dec. 18. 2017 in Fl. the news story I read was on WFTV9 news page. It tells about what happened and the charges. I HAVE NOT SEEN the final trial release. Some of the squirrel hunting pages are reporting that they just had the trial and he received some felons out of it. Seems a little fast for it to be done in the courts ??? If you find any more info I would like to know about it also.

I post these dog stories because it seems to interest some on here. I have and will shoot a dog for bothering my stuff BUT it sure looks more and more like you had better have proof now days. Just a few weeks back I had 3 Llamas killed by dogs, they were well taken care of probably pure bred dogs ,not hunting dogs, They are not a problem anymore but I sure was concern, even though I was perfectly in the right to dispose of them, With all the tracking devices and chips and all the other stuff that is out there now I just thought way it is now days the right person could still sue me and even if I beat them in court , which I think I could have, it still can cost a bunch of money and be a big problem

I just saw a horrific picture on Facebook of a (formerly) beautiful heifer that was mauled by a neighbors Pitt. The owners primary concern was getting her heifer doctored and she should be okay with enough antibiotics & hopefully not end up blind, although will clearly have scars. Don't know the status on the Pitt, neighbors, etc but I believe she's filing a report with the Sheriff - I'm still following the story, she's providing updates periodically. IMO if that dog isn't euthanized it will be back. I've never shot a dog but if one attacked my cattle I wouldn't hesitate.

Dogs are a lot like teenagers. When they’re by their self they don’t usually cause much of a problem. Get three or four together..... look out.

You know me and how I am about my hounds... The problems we have here are people move here from the city and don't realize dogs have roaming rights in my county and if a dog has a gps or tracking collar on him the animal control cant touch them. We have had several issues and home owners get the britches sued off of them and often do jail time and lose their jobs. Its a very fine line here and you better have all your ducks in a row you can still be sued and cost you a lot of money even if your right but the county will stand behind you in court if you are in the right. If you are wrong they will make your life miserable and you will wish you never seen a dog.

Yep..it becomes a big contest of some kind between them.

My neighbours found a stray dog in their place , they have sheep and poultry free range. Anyhow they saw it before it did any damage and chased it out on the road, they then got in their car and followed it well back to see where it lived which was about 2 km away. They knocked on the door and informed the owner that it was harassing their sheep and if it returned it would be a dead dog. The owner swore black and blue it wasn't their dog, he had been in his yard the whole time, my neighbours said they had just followed it back to your place, that was an argument that was a bit hard to counter.

Now that there are electronic wireless and GPS containments, there is no reason anyone's dog should be loose..
I would have one in the city too, then your dog could dash out the front door and not disappear or dig under the fence...
For those who understand, need no explanation, ....for those who don't, none will do

That would be responsible, a rare trait in today's world.

The Fish and Wildlife has these big wild dogs that they are fond of. I would think that the same rule applies to domestic dogs. It is referred to as SSS. If a tracking collar is involved then relocation to a spot several miles away is recommended.

Trouble is they have every place that dog was before you SSS and after you relocated it on a controller and you are in worse shape than before for trying to cover it up. That kind of what this last person did in the story I posted.
Your best option now days is to ONLY shoot dogs that are bothering you stock and ALWAYS get documentation, cell phone video, pictures and get the sheriff involved immediately. Not wait till they arrive at you place then say they killed 5 calves and I hauled all the evidence a thousand miles away and sunk it in the ocean, if you know what I mean your probably fixing to get in a heap of trouble. And as soon as you get a felon your life will never be the same.
A lot of these stories I get with dogs being shot with tracking devices are hounds , and hounds are not as app to be a problem as just yard dogs. in all my years hunting hounds mine would NEVER bother livestock and if one would have it would have only did it once and you would not have had to shoot it because I would have did it myself.
