the freaks come out at night**update on Cubby**

Postby phildidit » Wed Nov 19, 2008 6:38 am

nothing like waking up at 4 am and killing somethng....at 4 this morning my daught er woke up crying, so i went in to see what was wrong. she said she couldn't sleep, i asked why. she said, " because of that".. i stopped and listened and i heard cying... and a dog barking. i looked out the window and there was a dog in my goat pen. i grabbed my .410 and went outside. a pitbull was in my goat pen and my billy, named "Cubby Bear" was crying and bleeding. i shot the dog. Cubby held his own, his leg is hurt and he has blood on him, but i think he will beall right. my nanny goat wasn't even touched. it appears that the dog must have pushed its way under the fence. it couldn't get out once i started shooting. sun's coming up , i need to go check on Cubby again.

Glad to here that cubby bear will recover. You have my permission to shoot
every pit pull you find. I Know some of them seem to make good pets but
they can attack at any time.

Call animal control. If the dog had a collar the owner will have to pay your vet bills.
Best,

Sometimes the tables are turned did you see the history channel about the pitbull that was killed? It turns out a mountainlion did it.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Mountain lions are not too good in a goat pen either. A 410 is not enough then.

Good job Phil. I had a friend that used to shoot 44 mag bullets thru his 410. I don't know but it must have had an open choke. Works like a 410 slug. :D

Yea, he quickly found a way out of the chicken pen even with an a$$ full of shot.
