No predator is going to mess with kids that have a dog with them. Period. And even friendly dogs will protect their "kids". Its instinct.
I have already shot over the heads of poachers on my land, who mouthed off to my wife after she told them, politely that they were on private property. The straw that broke the camel's back was after they called her a bitch. Now, she can be a bitch, but that advice given to her is only reserved for me, not anybody else.
In the aforementioned situation, I'd draw my gun on them and order the two guys to stop, if they didn't they'd get shot, but I wouldn't shoot to kill.
