I am very much a dog lover, but also in agreement with most everyone here. If it is feral it is no longer the kind of animal that I know and likely would be a threat to the kind of dogs I love.

It's dead meat.

Hell it's the best advice in many threads.

that is a tuff one. I would use a gun to make sure they were down right there. I can only imagine the headlines if they were to somehow get out of the woods and be found with a broadhead in them. I would have a hard time doing it as I am a dog lover but in the long run you would be doing them a service. Domestic animals just don't have the ability to make it in the wild. That is why they attack other pets and chickens and what have you.

If they are attacking, they would be put down if caught by animal control anyway - so you're just saving the taxpayers money.

I would shoot depending on the behavior of the dog.

Depending on the area that you are in, there will be no wondering about if they belong to someone. If there is a possibility of them belonging to someone, I ask them if they have a dog that looks like the ones I have encountered. If they don't belong to anyone in the area, or there is no one in the area, they go down. Besides, it doesn't take a trained eye to tell the difference between a healthy pet and a feral dog. One of my hunting mentors once told me, "You know how you keep it a secret when you see a huge buck? Well, if a dog keeps ruining your hunting trips, kill it and practice that same kind of secrecy."
