Default Rally to save dogs set to be put down for killing-pigs

I saw this from my local station on Facebook. It makes me sick and sad at the same time. I signed the petition to not have them euthanized. I'll get that link paste it on here. So far over 1500 have signed as as well as me. We need to save those dogs.

If they'd killed your dogs, would you want them put down?

Living in a livestock heavy area, I won't sign this. The dogs killed a farmers livestock. If it were my pigs,goats,sheep, I don't think they would have made it out of the barn alive. Sorry.

I can't sign either, but the dogs look sweet. I feel sad for them, the dogs, and the family. But I feel sorry for the owner of the farm too. No one should have to see their critters mauled, be it rabbits, or chickens, or dogs or pigs.

On the other hand, where do you live that coyotes aren't a possibility, and who do you hold accountable when coyotes kill your chickens or pigs? You kill the coyotes if you can. But the pigs are just as dead.

I am guessing that the problem with domestic dogs is that they are not afraid of humans and will go much closer to human dwellings and buildings, and once the dogs have had this sort of an adventure, the chances that the dogs will repeat the process is much greater.

Can't sign it. I live in farm country.

I'm torn on this issue.

On one hand, the woman offered full compensation to the farmer. I think that warrants giving the dogs a second chance. Killing the dogs won't fix the farmer's pigs, but the family clearly wants to remedy the issue. I think it isn't too late to euthanize the dogs if they re-offend.

On the other hand, the farmer said the dogs were charging the farmer until they were baked into a stall and secured, and it's in the local laws to euthanize dogs that harm livestock.

Difficult situation for both families to be in, I do not envy them one bit.

Where I own a home (rural Alabama), the sheriff won't even respond to a stray report, even if it isn't bothering livestock. When i called about a chow that was living in the woods behind my property, the sheriff told me to shoot it before it went after my animals (at the time we had a cow, 3 week old calf, 6 pigs, 70+ chickens, 5 goats, and 5 horses on the property). It scared the horses out of the fence one night, and I suspect my tenant took care of it the next day, because I never saw it again. (The horses were his.). When coyotes were close by, my son would sleep in his truck near the barn with a gun ready, fortunately, we never had to shoot any.

The common sentiment in livestock heavy areas is "S,S,S"...shoot, shovel, shut up...for dogs on someone else's property.

I don't know, the dogs sure don't look like killers in those pics, but still...
Not too long ago, three dogs escaped their yard and killed a neighbor's goat. I don't really understand how AC couldn't pick up the dogs, but 6 days later they were back killing the same neighbor's horse.

The farmer lost my sympathy when she wants to turn 2 dead pigs into a $45,000 cash cow. I believe she should get more than market value, but 45k?

Its all about the money and nothing that I read even proves that these dogs did it. It was up to the person to decide the fate of the dogs and because there was not enough money involved they die? The person that owned the pigs actually was able to read the tags and call Animal Control? The pigs didn't squeal and make any noise? I don't buy that these dogs did it...Petition signed.

On the dogs' FB support page is the report made by the Sheriff's Office/AC. I don't see this $45k anywhere...but the reporting is pretty damning imo.
