160 goats killed in one night. That is some massive carnage.

The dogs can’t be found.
French Camp is not exactly way out in the country.

If it had been GA the livestock owner would have opened up on the dogs with a shotgun and it would have been over pretty quick.

Owner saw the pack, but in Kalifornia he could not be armed. Matter of fact, he had to look for shelter, himself.

Wise move on his part.

“Being at all times armed” turns out to be as valid now as in the time of the Founders.

I wonder...are the dogs all feral, or do they ‘acquire’ temporary pack members let out at night by unsuspecting owners, unaware their dogs lead double lives.

I mention this only because there have been instances where some dogs captured during such killings turn out to be pets.

Ex-Ochlocknee Ga boy has seen it several times. Wildlife authorities are trouble, not help. Wild dogs attacked in broad daylight once and I killed 5. They ran towards my brothers land and then I heard 5 more shots. The rest stayed away for months; the intense noise and howling put some fear into the wild dogs. Even if an ewe gets a minor bite on the head or neck, it dies of dog bite infection.

My father in law raises sheep. Anyway the standard MO is you shoot dogs on site on the property. They get in time to time and usually we catch em in the act. Gun em down and if they have tags we sue the owners for damages and always get paid. Anyway one year he stopped counting at 170 kills by august. That was one bad year though. Common problem for livestock owners. In VA you can react.

Where do you get that crap that you can't be armed in CA? I, and all of my friends and relatives, are armed to the teeth and will stay that way, and would damn well shoot at any pack of killer dogs we noticed killing live stock.

I live in Florida, where concealed carry is a “must issue” issue.

Many CCW permit holders here carry always. Had that man been carrying, his situation would have been far different.

I wish you the best in your fight to save Kalifornia and your guns.

PS Wouldn’t you agree that a Saiga 12 with a few 12 round stick magazines would have been preferable to the situation that man found himself in?

Even a handgun would have been better than looking for a fence to cower behind.

Or have I misunderstood his situation?

Fifi can go Cujo when the pack runs.

Another great reason to confine your dogs.

[But I can’t even fathom people who *don’t*...they care nothing for their dogs’ welfare?]

My sister has one. Every dog on the block bows and scrapes to her. :-) They are great protectors.

“That’s an insane total for one night.”

Just what biologists call a “killing frenzy”.

Means predators kill until exhausted or no more live prey.

PS Bureau-scientists, AKA Agency-Scientists, prefer “surplus kill”. Sounds ever so much more innocuous.
