Yes, I would call the dog warden. If he has to pay a fine maybe he'd pay closer attention to keeping his dogs contained.

One is friendly, the other runs like hell at first sight of me (good instincts!)

No I wouldn't. I would just shoot the dogs and be done with it.

Shoot shovel and shut up.

Primer, those sound like dogs roaming free. I enjoy roaming free. Don't you?
If they seem safe and are not damaging your property, let them be free.

for the most part i agree with you, but what can happen is sometimes the dogs will form into packs and end up with a pack mentality. what one dog wouldn't normally do will change when in a pack. and sometimes they can become dangerous to pets, livestock and people.

Jim Crow said the same thing about "coloreds."
Just yanking your chain.

I disagree, I know my dog is nice and generally good around kids. But I've seen him get mean when the kids that lived next to me teased him. I wouldn't risk it, I watch him whenever he's out and make sure he stays close to me or at least in my yard and not wandering around the neighborhood.

the type of dogs i'm talking about are like feral hogs. domestic dogs gone back to wild. pets are generally very different, because they tend to interact with people on daily basis. feral dogs don't.

in most cases and with very few exceptions, i don't believe there are bad dogs, but bad owners who don't care for their dogs responsibily.

Rule 1. Nobody loves YOUR kid or YOUR dog as much as YOU do.

Rule 2. Keep YOUR kid and YOUR dog in YOUR yard- unless I have invited them over, or they are with YOU.

Here in the country we have problems with dogs attacking/chasing livestock, and your dog IS absolutely at liberty to run free- on YOUR land. Find Fido chasing livestock on my land, it is perfectly legal to introduce Fido to Mr. Winchester.

PS- the young lady that I gave in marriage 2 weeks ago? At the age of 9 she was attacked by a dog roaming free. A 2 yr old male golden retriever. She was bitten thru both forearms, breaking the right arm. Bitten thru left eyelid (2 stitches) and 15 stitches down the center of her scalp. 4 days in the hospital on anti-biotic IVs. Attack was witnessed, no provocation by her.
