Non lethal force

non lethal force

Our last encounter with stray hunting dogs got me thinking how we need a non lethal option to supplement our home defense tools.

We ordered 5 shot gun shells with rubber slugs for just under 20 dollars.

Have a try at using a shepard's sling? The sling itself can be e.g. made from paracord and the ammunition is cheap; just save a bucket of stones from your next load of gravel. Or you can make them from clay.

a good permenet electric fence along your property line will keep your goats in and dogs, coyotes,ect out.

and will save time from daily herding, and better grazeing, brush clearance for the goats.

the key thing is to get a really good fence charger. buying a cheap one will cost you more in the long run.
