Kim Fedje shot and killed two dogs that had viciously attacked a
herd of 13 llamas in her care before turning and charging her. Fedje
was out on her morning rounds feeding the animals. As she approached
the llamas, she noticed they were huddled together in a defensive
stance. That’s when she saw two dogs circling the herd. When she
called out to the llamas, the dogs turned in her direction. "I could
hear them growling from 40 yards away," Fedje recalled. "They were
making a beeline for me. I thought I was dead." Fedje reacted by
firing her rifle at the attacking dogs. The first dog fell after two
or three shots, the second dog continued toward her until she had
emptied her gun. Fedje called her fiancé who went back out with her
to examine the animals. All 13 llamas had suffered dog bites. The
dogs, a labrador/rottweiler mix, belonged to a neighbor who had
taken them out for a walk the night before. Both animals had run off
into a cornfield and did not return.
