In chapter three, many of the events are caused by an unknown Alsatian dog that was in the area with its owners. Apparently the dog chased the sheep.

Write an essay about the responsibility of dog owners, as well as appropriate behavior regarding the livestock or crops of farmers and ranchers.

Part 3. In many areas, the crops or animals are accessible from roads. How should the passerby treat these? Are vineyards okay to walk through? Are apple orchards okay to picnic in? Ride dirt bikes in? Cows okay to pet? Feed? Using the example of Benson's sheep, the people saw no harm done at the time. Even if they were concerned about the damage their dog could have caused, the damage was unnoticeable at the time. How should this possibility affect the passerby's treatment of the commercial crops or livestock?
