ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. - The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office responded to an address on County Road 214 after reports of loose dogs killing a man's ducks, SJSO says.
When deputies arrived, the owner of the ducks explained that his neighbor's dog jumped the fence and killed his ducks. He said that he has been dealing with the dogs killing his ducks and chickens for approximately six months.
The victim said that each animal that was killed cost him roughly $200 for the year in possible income, according to the report.

The Sheriff's Office contacted Animal Control and advised the victim that they would be responding within a few hours to issue a citation to the owner of the dogs.
