I bring you.. the predator..!
While it is impressive, I’ve got to agree with RegP. I’d definitely be really careful in future – seen too many healthy dogs euthanased because they attacked livestock.
And there’s a good chance that deer will have problems over the next day or so with infection/shock etc,
Sorry – I sound like your dad now.Posted 9 years ago
you don’t do much in your post Dez to give the idea that you were anything but impressed by the encounter. I know you weren’t out to ‘get’ Deer but your dog clearly thinks attacking things that move is fun. This is VERY dangerous behaviour and could well result in it attacking something that’ll win the fight. That wouldn’t be quite as exciting to you i’m sure.
what you need is a trip to see Caeser 🙂

wilma, that picture is great, love the expression in her eyes.
She looks like a right playful thing.
I miss dogs 🙁
My Mrs won’t have them in the house.
The last one I had, was working dog on the farm, only thing it used to go for were rats and mice, very clever, totally loyal, would go without food if there was work to be done.
Used to cover me in doggy cow-mucky paw marks every morning I got to work 😉Posted 9 years ago
surfr – you’ve misunderstood my point I think
I’m not criticising Dezb at all – these things happen and I am indeed surprised the dog managed to tackle a grown deer.
My point is just that this would suggest caution is needed in future. As previously stated, I see too many dogs needlessly put to sleep because of “accidents” with sheep etc. And there’s a good chance that deer’s future isn’t too rosy.Posted 9 years ago
that dozy bitch just caught a bloody deer!Posted 9 years ago
I thought catching a crow on friday was pretty amazing,but just now she was about 200m ahead of me, as I caught up there was a bit of a scuffle going on in a ditch. There she is savaging this poor full grown deer. I did the usual “LEAVE IT!” and she came straight over to me, leaving this creature sitting in the ditch staring at me in bewilderment (more likely terror).
It was ok – it ran off, had a bit of blood on its face.
Chortles at Rudeboy. That’s not fair on the poor lad!
Dez, did you read this thread before you posted it and think “I’ll get no grief for talking on STW about my out of control dog’s deer-maiming frenzy. They’ll all be really pleased to hear about it and a few people will say so, then the thread will fall off the front page”. ‘Cause that was a naive call if you did… 😉Posted 9 years ago
I could pick up on each of the absurd responses and explain why they are, but its too awkward with my hand in plaster, so i can’t be bothered.
Just this – an out of control dog wouldn’t respond to ‘leave it’ and an irrisponsible owner wouldn’t have said ‘leave it’
I guess I shouldn’t leave her alone in the room with our child now she has the taste of bloodPosted 9 years ago
As long as its your child I’m sure no-one minds. 😉
Besides, from what I hear, many children taste much like Pedigree Chum moist sachets with added healthsome vitamins, so you can never be quite sure your dog doesn’t have a taste for child-flesh even if it isn’t a killer.Posted 9 years agoInbred456Member
Friend of mine at work had a young bull terrier that was really soft as a soft thing. Took it for a walk where it clocked some sheep at lambing time, of it went. It got 200yrds Boom, farmer shot it, no warning no nothing. Farmer then went up to dog in front of my friend and finished it off! I presume to save it from any suffering. My mate was shell shocked. He said he was going to report it to the police, he was going to sue etc etc. Farmer told him he was a plonker, said that if he could not control his dog then he shouldn’t have one. He then produced a card with his solicitors details. Needless to say my mate got nowhere with the police and the solicitor told him he was wasting his time. He now keeps his dog on a lead passing farms etc. A harsh lesson indeed.Posted 9 years ago
