Engine theft

Was walking on the canal last night and saw somebody taking a small Honda outboard engine off a moored boat. No big deal normally, but it was 12.30pm at night.
Challenged the guy but he legged it immediately. Sadly for him he failed to outrun my two Rotters who gave him a lesson he won't forget for a while.

bloody hell

whilst i agree he deserves it, i hope they didnt maul him! youd be in a whole world of trouble as will the dogs.

We had two alsations on a farm, nipped one old guy who walked his westie across the fields at 6am, then nipped a wagon driver who jumped out of his cab right on front of them. Both were reported, two strike rule, dogs put down The law is ridiculous!

Would the law be as ridiculous if your dogs had killed someone?

Challenged the guy but he legged it immediately. Unfortunately my two little dogs thought it was a game and caught up with him. Despite all of my efforts to call them off, one of them may have nipped him.
Edited for accuracy.

What happened with the engine?

Challenged the guy but he legged it immediately. Sadly for him he fell down an old well, but luckily for him two Rotters (lassie and valiant) located him and saved him from certain death!
Re-editted for the purposes of your statement

Now what about that engine?

They didn't though did they! They nipped his arm and the truckers leg. They didnt maul him like an out of control american pit bull in a public park!

They went for the westie and the old man picked it up and got nipped. It's our land not public land and they thought it was a rabbit. Two loved expensive pets there to protect the sheds from being burgled as we have been over 20 times in 10 years!!! Police wont help!

On your principle, if you sped for example, and hit a child but they lived, should you be put away for man slaughter?! No.

Hi paul my view for what its worth if they were on your land then your dogs did no wrong , if people was walking around someones back garden they would let the dogs out first i would .Just because you have land people think they can walk all over it
