    Isn't it if you have any animals that classify as livestock and see an unknown dog on your property, you can shoot whether you are technically a farmer or not?

    I dont know that could be a bit extreme though. Like we have horses so does that mean if the neighbours dog gets on my property I can shoot it? We also have a farm up north (sheep and wheat) but its so isolated we havnt had any dog problems just foxes which we bait.
    But this wasnt about dogs on peoples properties this was about people going into the bush, hunting them out and shooting them.

    It depends on where you are. To my knowledge, it is illegal to discharge a firearm in a built up area (ie suburbia).

    You also have to have a gun license and a good reason. It is pretty well enforced here. Just today we have had our gun safe and guns checked by the cops. This happens periodically.

    Do horses qualify as livestock?

    Absolutely.

    ...But if you or your parents shot dogs that were mauling them and you/they had no license and unregistered guns then you/they would be in deep doodoo with the police should the dog owners make a complaint. Of course you/they can then sue them for losses. Fun, eh?

    I know its like a continuous circle.. doomed if you do, doomed if you dont.

    I just think putting a price on a feral dog is a bit sick, especially when theres no way of knowing if it is indeed feral. Also it might encourage inexperienced people to begin shooting, which could end in some horrific results!

    It also might encourage people who care about their dogs, to keep them at home and not let them roam on to private property without permission.

    I know but I'm not talking about private property I'm talking about in the bush. This is not farmers shooting a dog thats threatening his sheep this is people going out into the bush and shooting dogs. I'm totally for it if its regulated and done properly but I'm just worried it'll turn into a sport, like pig hunting has become.
