Hunting Behaviors of Springer Spaniels
We are losing chickens & ducks in our semi-rural neighborhood and suspect the three Springer Spaniels that are left to run wild when their owner is at work are the culprits.
I had two chickens and a rooster vanish on a day another neighbor saw the three of them run towards my property at the time they vanished. The really strange thing is there is no sign of the poultry, no bodies, no feathers on my property anywhere.
Does this sound to anyone like a group of Springer Spaniels, would they have retrieved the poultry or is it more likely that they would eat the bodies and leave them?? Please someone give me an idea of their hunting behavior patterns prior to approaching their owner.
Thank you in advance!!Return to Love Springer Spaniels FAQsReturn to Love Springer Spaniels Homepage
