I don't care what you say, you don't shoot a dog--especially your or someone elses pet-- because it's killing chickens. It doesn't know any better. You shouldn't hit it and you deffinatley shouldn't use a shock collar(try it on yourself if you don't think it's cruel). "The place of the victim?!" This isn't a human-being carrying out a homicide, it's a wild animal acting on instinct. I'm sick of authorities hunting down and trying to kill animals because they attacked and/or killed a human. What's next, charging them with murder and taking them to court. If they're found guilty--the evidence would be obvious because they wouldn't be doing this if they didn't see the person attacked or find the body--do we put them on death row and take them to the gas chamber when it's "time." (I know, there are a lot of good authorities, but some of them are just...stupid.) Really this is a serious problem, and you need to be careful. It seems that we need to read manuals on how to protect ourselves from wild animals. (Not attacking, because that wouldn't be a good idea. Tranquilizers are good.)

About the dog:

I don't know how to stop the dog in a humane way, but maybe you can keep the dog out of the yard and reinforce the cage to protect the chickens....what else is there to do?
