I'm bothered by ANYONE on my property that doesn't have express permission to be there. We actually have a 6 ft privacy fence and a lock on the inside of our gate so even the meter reader can't get in. If I could keep people out of our front yard I would.

People, especially kids, coming unsupervised onto a property with animals--especially large dogs and/or livestock--are a liability issue. Heck, a few species of livestock can kill or severely injure an adult without intending to, much of less a child.

Also, if the OP's fence in not in great shape the kids could hurt themselves hopping it, which could be another liability issue. Aside from all that it's extremely rude, IMHO, to hop people's fences without asking or hike their property without permission, I don't care if you have 1/4 acre or a 100 acres.

Other people do not belong on my property. I am very territorial. My mom tells me at five I chased a hunter with a giant shotgun out of our property(who I guess promptly went and told my mom, worried I was yelling at people with guns).

We had one neighbor who came from the city who said he could go on my property any time. Lots of screaming fights over this. A farmer shooting at him finally made him get it.

To many people open a fence and leave it open or feed animals they shouldn't. Ride your four wheeler through my yard and mess up a fence or my yard and I'm coming after you.

Not to mention I don't want to check my property for trespassers when we shoot.

I'd be worried enough about what would happen to my dogs if the kids startled them one day or something that I'd be putting up hot tape or something too.

I find it funny people are so worried about these rude inconsiderate kids (they have been told MULTIPLE times to stay out of the yard) getting a minor shock from a bit of electric wire/tape but no one is worried about the chance of a large territorial breeding taking the exception, for whatever reason, to people being in its yard. Which is worse a shock or a bite from a rottie?

Im not saying the dogs will bite but under the right circumstances they would

I was referring to the general comment of "I don't understand why so many folks don't want trespassers" to which I was replying why I personally don't want to see someone on my property that doesn't belong there.

Oh & I have a BB gun but I don't use it for tresspassing ... I have a 22 rifle & a 20 gauge shotgun for that.

I am also very territorial ... VERY. I have run jerk teenagers off my propery at gunpoint before & I wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Catch you hopping my fence, or cutting it & won't even warn you before I fire on your ass & I would be well within my rights to do so.

Sorry if this sounds mean but if I discover a person on my property that wasn't invited by one of us I want them to GTFO. I am not the only one either, most farmers & ranchers have signs posted & will fire upon trespassers

I'd prefer to keep people out as the law here has now changed so if a dog bites on PRIVATE PROPERTY the owner is now liable.

So yea..... My dogs don't bite at ALL, but why take a risk?

Strange children dropping over the fence into a yard full of dogs...? You're all braver than I am clearly

I don't have overlooking neighbours though, thankfully!!! So its really a moot point.

I find it interesting that in a country where people can shoot others for being on their property, hot wire could get them sued.

Or that you can shoot them, but if your dog bites them in the same spot they can sue you wtf is that?

Weird. Also that cops can trespass and shoot your dogs with no consequence.

Depends on where you live, here in the boonies a dog biting is the same as using an actual weapon like a gun or whatever ... As long as I can prove they trespassed
