See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I was in my kitchen when I heard my chickens going crazy. They are about 100 yds from my kitchen window. I have 48 chickens in my coop. I went out side to check them and I saw a big ass dog trying to get in the coop! I ran and grabbed my 410 and shot in the air to scare him off. He didn't stop so I shot him. Hit him in the hind leg. He ran off, he must of only gotten some of the spray since he ran. I'm pissed. I'm gonna go look for him to see if he is badly wounded, if he is I will put him down. I have a 110 acre farm, he does not belong to a neighbor. Found him out by the horses. He was badly wounded so I put him down. Glad he didn't get to the horses, he is foaming at the mouth. I think he may be rabid. I moved him on to a tarp and pulled him away from any livestock. Dh is gonna take care of him when he gets home from work. ETA- there is another one out there. I went out to check the coop win a flashlight and I caught a glimpse of it. I ran back into the house. Rabid dogs don't fuck around, they will attack you. I'm waiting for dh to get home so I can camp out without dd under me. I'm staying by the window waiting while she watches Peg & Cat. ETA 2- so I have a strip of woods about 75yrds from my back deck. I'm sitting and waiting. I can hear the other dog in there. I know it's not a deer, I started hunting at 9. Also, to all you city dwellers: where the fuck do you think your food comes from?! ME. People like ME. I am protecting YOUR food. So stfu. I do not feel bad for shooting the dog. I do feel bad that I HAD to shoot him, but I have to protect my livelihood.ALSO, I ran out of my 410 shells. So I will be using my SKS.
