I heard the rooster's alarm call and
went out to see what all the fuss was about.
There were two dogs...
an alaskan Malamut or maybe a Husky...
whatever it was it was BIG,
and a pomeranian at the back of the chicken shed.
I thought they were trying to dig into the chickens and
hurled a shoe at them and chased them off.
The little dog yapped and ran off but
the arrogant malamut/husky just strolled away
and looked at me from a short distance.
But when I looked, poor Bubba was cowering bloodied
behind the coop.
|Back of her head|
|She has a tear under her tail.|
A thorough inspection didn't find any life threatening wounds. So
I have just washed everything and put both goats in the shed to calm down.
Maybe this is goat karma for the vegetable attack yesterday.
Bazza was untouched but has blood on a horn and his ear.
I am sort of hoping it is dog blood!
Like the bloodied water in the bowl,
I am seeing red.
However, there is nothing to do...the goats were
outside the property on public land and the
back gate was open.
I dread to think what damage the dogs would have
been able to inflict if the goats had been tethered.
