Predatory dog shot in Evaline
A vicious dog was shot near Evaline Friday after reportedly killing a neighbor’s chickens, according to the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office.
The 47-year-old owner of the chickens had contacted deputies May 21 to report his neighbor’s German Shepherd had repeatedly entered his yard on the 300 block of Hale Rd. West to attack the poultry and, on Friday, was found with a chicken in its mouth. The victim then shot the animal with a .22 rifle, at which point it fled back to its owner’s yard.
Deputies contacted the owner, a 50-year-old Winlock man, who told them the dog had been hit in the shoulder and was expected to survive. The owner was then cited for allowing his dog to wander off of his property.
Those dealing with problem animals should remember, though it can be legal to shoot them, it is not always legal to discharge a firearm if you live within city limits or if doing so may harm neighboring persons or property. The public is advised to contact authorities before attempting to neutralize such animals.
Those with information about ongoing investigations are encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office at (360) 740-1266 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-748-6422.
