So long story short some friends of mine live in the Adelaide hills on a few acres and have some goats which have been attacked and harassed by the neighbours dogs which frequently enter my friends property. The neighbours have been asked nicely (several times) to control their dogs which they have failed to do, they were then sent a letter which was also ignored. My friends then approached their local council and they sent a letter also to the dogs owners who promptly ignored that too. The ranger then suggested my friends could build a dog proof fence around their property (lolwut) at great expense. I think the time for action has come and offered to shoot them should they enter the property again. I come from an older generation before dogs were elevated to "furry children" status and have no qualms about it. I have also checked with local Police and they said as long as the firearm is registered and it's done in a safe manner then we are within our rights. What concerns us is the possibility of legal action from the owners, being affluent types who no doubt love their dogs I'm sure they would try but would they have a leg to stand on? The dogs are a rottweiler and a staffy/pitbull looking thing by the way...not ankle snappers. Opinions?
