Although in certain circumstances a man may justifiably act to protect his property from attack by dogs, even by shooting if necessary1, he must not so use his land as to tempt other people's dogs to destruction; thus if he sets traps baited with strong-smelling meat so near his neighbour's yard, or so near a highway where dogs may lawfully pass, that dogs are irresistibly drawn to the traps, he is liable in damages2.
