C-Realm Podcast: Episode 16

C-Realm Podcast

Episode 16: Sudden Violent Death

Had I left the chickens in the usual enclosure, they would have been safe from my neighbor's dogs, but I was afraid they'd freeze to death, so I moved them to an enclosure built for dogs to get them out of the freezing rain and give them warm(ish) dog houses to huddle in during the cold nights.

When the first sheriff's deputy arrived, he stood guard while I picked up the chooks that looked like they had the best shot at survival and brought them in the house. Later, I went out with another box and collected all the ones still breathing and brought them inside as well. When I left home to drive to civilization to post the podcast, nine of the chooks were still breathing (two of them barely breathing) and three of them could stand. The rest, I fear, will die in the coming hours.

I'll update this entry with links and musical acknowledgements in the next day or two.

Aww.. I'm so sorry about your chickens. I had a similar experience. Afterwards, I called the dogs' owner and told her what she owed me for the chickens, and I asked her to restrain her dogs because they threatened my children in my own yard. She refused, and suggested I shoot the dogs. Which I did.

shot the dogs
This morning I have made arrangements to aquire a rifle. One way or another, those dogs are not long for this world.

This didn't download right last summer when I was catching up on these. Just listened today. (By the way, Podomatic really sucks. If they were free I guess it would be worth it, but seriously whatever you're paying them is too much. These half-hour downloads are ridiculous.)

My question is: Didn't you have like a heavy shovel or something? If I were in that situation I'd just have grabbed a big metal thing, or a stick or something. Hell, a kitchen knife. Though that's probably getting a bit more intense than you'd want. I'm not in the business of advising people on dog-killing but if it were me I'd have just started beating the dogs with heavy things.

I actually grabbed a brick and went to confront the 200+ pound mastiff with it, but my wife pleaded with me not to and I opted to spare my children the risk of seeing their father killed in front of them that morning.
