AbstractQuestionnaires were mailed to 300 sheep producers in Ohio during spring 1979, and 218 returns were analyzed. Predation losses from dogs averaged 1.3% of the sampled sheep for a minimum statewide cost of $836,000 in 1978. Physiographic region, month, flock size, and management technique had no significant effect on number or percent killed per flock. Most attacks (P<0.02) occurred at night and morning, and ewes were more vulnerable than lambs or rams (P<0.005).
