Like ole fish eye, we have a livestock predition law. If I recognize who's dog it is I call them first and give them a chance to contain the offending mut. If it is a stray, I follow the law.

Like I said before...

Here in Vermont that dog would already be dead...

There is a law on the books that ANYONE can kill a dog that is 'worrying' their livestock...The owner of the livestock is not obliged in the least to find out who owns the dog...Or to tell anyone at all that he has disposed of a nuisance dog...

One definition from for 'worrying' is:

"1. To harass by pursuit and barking; to attack repeatedly; also, to tear or mangle with the teeth."

Shoot, Shovel, Shut-up...

That's the way it is here in northern MO too. But what other choice do you have, really? Cattle are too valuable to allow dogs to injure or kill just for fun. You've gone beyond the call of duty, I think. But it's hard to do it, isn't it, right or not.

If you call the sheriff about dogs chasing livestock here they will just tell you to shoot them, they wont even respond. Quite simple. If they injure your livestock, shoot the dog and bill the owner. Not really much of a problem.

the waters done gone under the bridge....but the way it works around here is to politely mention once, wait awhile, then plug 'em.
in your case, since you've made it known that they're a problem, anything happening to them can be brought right back to your doorstep.
about all you can do now is to scare them off with the 12 ga (real close like) and act real cold towards the neighbors.

this is a time it comes in real handy being a good neighbor! if you blade their drive or plow their garden or any such thing, nows the time to call in your marker!
