Yviestevie,as I understand it you let your dogs run free in your garden which it was well fenced and no access by anyone unless you allowed them in.
1)) my friend lets her dogs into her garden which is adjacent to her property and as I said it is fenced off. By rights nobody can get in to her land unless they walked straight passed the front door and undid a latch on the gate .
So this is no different to what you did except it was maybe on a bigger scale ,I'm guessing to your garden,- and as it is a small holding had chickens in seperate hen pens these fenced off.
2)) so how did the person get in ,? they had no right to enter there property unless they were going to see them. So to go as they must have done they were trespassing.Around the field are notices warning the land is private.
No one can understand why this person was there either ( except to what she said and this was, she was going for a jog)
3)) you did not let your dog's run free? So did you keep them on a lead all the time? That is cruel ,a dog needs to run ,it is natural and essentially healthy.
What is the point of having your own fenced field and walking your dog's on a lead?
You can hardly call land that is fenced off with chain link and hedging open land so why not let them run for execise.open land is open land ,this was not open land,it was not a free for all.
4)) I now refer to you assuming we have all nipped over the odd fence as children,well you maybe , but I was brought up to respect other people's property .I knew right from wrong. I was not a goody goody but I did know the wrath of my father's belt.
But with your dog that was attacked on your doorstep , this is irrelevant to my friends situation, I ask you this ,
