    I had seen that, but still wonder where there is enough room for a sheep farm in Decatur, Georgia. I wonder if it was Decatur county which is in the southwest corner of the state.

    I thought this thread was going to be about Chris Christie’s niece taking on the police.

    I hope that do g is OK. There is a fund to cover the anticipated $15,000 in medical bills.

    It was Laurel Ridge, maybe midway between Decatur and Embry Hills.

    More about the guy at the link below. He's an "urban shepherd".

    https://decaturish.com/2022/11/lives...-neighborhood/

    "As an urban shepherd, my primary work is finding good pasture for a few hundred otherwise homeless sheep," Wierwille said. "I do that by leasing them out to clear brush in parks and backyards and around schools and other public buildings."

    He checks on the sheep all over the city and keeps dogs with them to make sure the sheep are safe. He runs a business called Ewe Can Do It Naturally.

    "We use sheep to clear brush and follow up with labor to help remove invasive species like English ivy, Chinese privet, Japanese hollies, cherry laurels, wisteria, kudzu, etc," Wierwille said.

    Here's Casper:



    For what its worth, the dog was just 20 months old and weight about 85 pounds. My aunt used to raise Great Pyrenees full-grown males run about 150 pounds. They're about as big and strong as Newfoundlands and miles fiercer.

    That's awfully brazen.

    'Coons can be dangerous critters. Been known to kill coonhounds. They roll on their back and disembowel them with their claws.

    Mom was brave, but once she had the 'coon, she should have brained it against the wall or the pavement, so her kid could hopefully avoid doing a rabies series.

    I was surprised when it said sheepdog, then I saw it was a Pyrenees. Yep. Fighters.
