    My brother use to own an Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle dog and it had extreme prey drive. He chase anything that move… dogs, animals, kids, riding bicycles, cars, etc.  As soon as he spotted movement he was gone at 100 miles per hr and it was impossible to catch him in a surprise situation. You could never let him off the leash on walks or out in public. After he attacked, knocked it over or caught it and it would stop moving he would walk away like nothing happen. It was definitely predatory aggression trigger by his prey drive (instinct). I wished I knew what I know now and train him in the foundation style training and did impulse control exercises with him. I could have save by brother a lot of heartache of having to surrender him after my brother received three warnings from his dog attacking in predatory aggression.
