That is so terrible.  That owner of the dogs doesn't sound too responsible.  Doesn't sound like he fed them much if they went that crazy.

Does it seem strange that the dogs were returned to the owner? I thought that a dog killing livestock was pretty serious...I know that in many places its legal to kill a dog that attacks your livestock. I've heard that once a dog "gets a taste for blood" so to speak that it is more likely to kill again, but I don't know if that is accurate.

What a shame that this happened.

That's sure sad.  Those poor sheep and lambs.  When dogs kill livestock around here they are usually put down and the owner has to pay up to 5 times the value of the livestock.  I sure hope that those dogs will be kept home so they don't go back and kill again.

Usually when pet dogs kill like that they aren't hungry.  They kill for fun.  It's like a game to them.Frown

Gee Leslie I didn't know that they just kill for the sport.  The owners weren't too responsible if their dogs were running in a pack.
