No...people should always control and watch their dogs. I don't for a second like to think of someone's poor pup being shot....but it is a sad fact around here that people loose chickens...and they are as important to them as our dogs are to us. Nobody should ever allow their dog to roam........it is a sad fact of life that they can be hurt..or worse. When a dog roams on to someone else's property.....there is a risk, and that person has a right to protect what is theirs. So, I can't really blame them............just gotta keep my pups at home at all times! But, that is my responsibility.
