HM, I totally understand your love for dogs, just because someone suggests shooting problematic dogs doesn't mean they dont have the same love for dogs that you have.
I don't think anyone takes pride or joy in killing animals that would be considered "pets" but sometimes dogs turn and go down the wrong paths (for whatever reasons)
sometimes it just happens and we may never know why it happened.
Stray dogs probably aren't getting regular daily meal requirements so at some point they're going to do anything to eat, we've all heard stories about dogs,
wild or stray dogs or sometimes even pet dogs attacking.
So I guess the best thing to do in every case would be to call a game warden and let them deal with it unless the situation has someones life in immediate danger.

BB, I know and appreciate you comments! I just love dogs and to think about shooting one would have to have a very good reason behind it. Just for the record, I'm no PETA person or any other save the animal group member, I eat meat.

There are two instances when I would shoot a dog to kill it,
1. If it were coming at my child, wife, myself, or anyone else in my family
2. If it were chasing cattle around and causing them to go through fence

There are two instances when I would shoot a dog to hurt it (a.k.a. BB gun)
1. When the stupid thing keeps coming in my garage and pulling EVERYTHING it can out into the yard OR tears open trash set out for trashman.
2. When it constantly pee's on the tires of the vehicles that have been recently washed (and recently washed could be from a rainstorm! ha)


True story... when I was about 13 y/o I went to my cousin's house (she was much older) for a Christmas dinner. I had just gotten a brand new pair of jeans that morning for Christmas. Well I wore them to my cousin's and I was down stairs with my cousin's 4 children playing ping pong in the basement. All of a sudden I looked under the table and this long haired black dog (which was HUGE) was growling at me under the table. I slowly backed away and he stepped towards me. I was threatened BIG TIME. He then took a snap at me which made the tator RUN like the wind up the stairs. Well guess who was following me?!?! YEP, buster the stupid dog. Well I got about 3 stairs from the top and this dog got my leg and bit down on me hard. Ripped my brand new jeans from the cuff to the crotch as I pulled my leg away. My NATURAL instinct in this scenario: I literally kicked that dog's head so hard that they later had to put him down b/c of brain issues. He went flying down the stairs and hit the concret hard. To top it off... my cousin was TICKED at me for doing it. All I did was look down at my crotch and back up at her and said "SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?!"

Now comon' HM... tell me you wouldn't have done the same thing. That dog needed to be put down. I love dogs too, but many times they don't have the right owners to train/teach them or they just can't be domesticated.

I would have probably done the same thing Tator
but have to ask were the pants really torn or did you have to throw them out for another reason?

I do not condone shooting anyones pet (or a possible pet) unless there is imminent danger to humans. I had a few collard dogs that would come by this winter, one got caught in a squierll trap I had set next to the front door. They came back and one growled at me as I was doing some work outside. I grabbed a 20 guage and fired two shots into my wood pile ( no where near the dogs) The sound was all it took to send them running away, tail tucked between there legs and I haven't seen them since.

The farmer out back has theretened to shoot a neighbors dog if it was found on his property. When my dog gets loose, (and he thinks cows are great to investigate), it is very nerve racking every second until he is safely back in my control.

Nice move Tator, All dogs beware of the iron foot!

Fight or flight. You choose flight first, then the fight chose you : )
