This works both ways. Deer hunters sometimes think all the adjacent land owners should walk on egg shells while deer season is underway so as to not disturb the deer. That's a bit unrealistic in my opinion. Yeah, I keep my dog penned during deer season because she would ruin my hunting by following me everywhere but I certainly don't expect every neighbor to go to the trouble to keep their dogs tied for months just because I want to chase a deer. And there is no way I would even consider shooting a dog for running through the woods chasing a deer.


I don't think it's being unrealistic at all.... If you are going to own a dog, it's your responsibility to look after it... keep it on your own property by whatever means.

If the neighbor would refuse to get their dog, if the dog was mean, and it ran off deer multiple times then SSS would be the verdict. But heck, like someone else said if it was a nice job I might just take it and give it to a family or a no kill shelter lol. Needs to be taken care of, especially if its on another persons property.

In my 55 years of life, I can not remember NOT having dogs. There are pictures of me in diapers with dogs, for those times I can't remember...lol.

Presently I own and love three dogs. These dogs are either in the house or inside a fenced yard....I don't even let them outside the fence while I'm in the front yard.....if they go outside the yard or house, they are leashed.

Often times I hear dog owners say things like.."Well, I'd never chain a dog or put it in a pen, that's just cruel." I beg to differ. It's just being a responsible dog owner. It's not only being responsible for the pet's life but also being responsible and respectful of your neighbors' property.

Back when I was a kid, there were no leash laws. Everyone pretty much let their dogs roam. We knew who every dog belonged to. I remember lots of neighborhood dogs getting hit by cars back then. I lost a few myself.

So, is it more cruel to chain or pen a dog up where it is safe or let it run around and possibly get hit by a vehicle or make a neighbor mad enough to shoot it? The dog has no idea what it is doing is wrong, but you should.

With that question in mind, I see some people that own dogs that live their entire life on a chain in the backyard.....why??

Why own a dog that does not hunt like a german shepherd and simply chain it up out back? I can see if it stays inside at night and only gets chained up when you leave the house, but to chain one up for a lifetime, now that IS cruel, imo.

I'm glad you got this resolved, but next time, don't tell them that you'll shoot it.....I never did...I've taken out my share chasing deer and will do it again.

At our farm th only dogs we run into are the ones someone left for dead back in "the middle of nowhere'. Our road tuns through a wma. So its alot of fun for those guys to get all their stuff together just to have a dog screw it up. The other dogs are the ones people drop to run deer off our place back to the wma. Down the road at my buddy's place the meth head neighbors have three dogs that kill the deer and go for your throat if they see you. Told him to shoot him. They wont because they are afraid their cabin will get burned down. The county can't catch them. So what do you do. Sticky situation.

Last I checked we have leash laws in TN, and if the owner allows their dog to run around off their property it's negligent. We also have a "Dangerous" dogs list here in TN.

You have the right to defend yourself from a viscous dog by means of deadly force. But only after it bites you "One" time due to our "One Bite Law". But if you kill a dog just because it's "Trying" to attack you, you will be at fault.

Get pictures, and video of the dog(s), and do what was done here. They cannot ignore that evidence. Animal Control cannot do anything unless they have that evidence, or catch the dog(s) away from the owners property.

TN actually has very strict dog laws. You just have to find the right person that actually cares to uphold those laws!

To hell with the leash law huh?


WOW! I guess I shouldn't let kids rabbit hunt with us then. My big bad mean beagles might chase one of them next.

If the "Beagles" are on YOUR property, then you shouldn't have a problem. But if the "Beagles" are on someone elses property, without permission from that landowner, then YOU are breaking the law.
It doesn't matter what type of dog it is. The law is the law, and you have no consideration for other landowners around you.
