Fitter, let me tell you how bad feral dogs were when I lived in Ak. My 2 boys and I live outside the little town of Nikiski. We raised chickens, ducks and rabbits. I let my boys 10 & 5 ride their bikes to town for treats occasionally. The people/trash in the park let their dogs run loose. When my boys would pass the park/trash hole a bunch of dogs would chase them. I posted on the bulletin board at the post office that any dog that chased my children would meet death. I signed my post. I recieved a few threats on the board but no one signed their name. I didn't allow my sons to ride their bikes to town anymore. Then the dogs found our pets/livestock. After a few losses I started locking them up when I was gone and we suffered no more losses. One Saturday i'm sitting on the porch enjoying a cold one the boys started screaming. A couple of dogs had my oldest backed up against the chicken coop and the youngest was sitting on the roof. Grabbed the 10-22 and started at tha closest to my son. All 7 were gut shots and most made it back to the trailer park. I then went a posted at the P.O. that any dog found on my property would meet death. Rough year for the trailer park trash.A total of 18 dogs never made it back and my boys never got bit once. Now this was on my property, Sheriffs were out and asked me to be nice and quit posting my kills at the P.O. And no, I had no friends at the park. To this day if either of my sons are threatened in any way i'll be there. (I'll tell you later about the pack outside of Armstrong creek). Dave
I saved alot on my insurance just by switching into reverse and fleeing the scene of the accident.
