Default The Neighbor Dog

Is it ok to shoot the neighbors dog with a pellet rifle if they let him walk a quarter of a mile up to your property every other day and he shits in your pole barn repeatedly when you leave the door open??

Just asking for opinions here.

The neighbor has been informed of the situation many times over the last two years.

They simply do not care.

The wife had a conversation with their son two years ago, in which she said if the dog come up here herassing our animals again, we will shoot the dog, please come and get the dog and take it home.

The neighbor man, who the children refer to as "stepdouche" called and started screaming at my wife latter that day, I took the phone and explained to him.

If the dog is harassing the animals on my farm, I can leagally shoot the dog. The police will come and investigate, if they find that the dog was actively molesting farm animals, they will take the dead dog, and write the owner a ticket for the offense.

He stated, "if that happens I will come up their and shoot you"

Mail it to him certified or post it on the property and take a picture. make a or several complaints with sheriff. Then if necessary shoot the dog. If this happens then it is well documented of the problem and you made every attempt not too.

Your first mistake was telling anyone. You have the right to protect your livestock. If you don't have any, get some. I recommend chickens, cheap and plentiful. Now that you have expressed a beef about the dog, anything happens to the dog, and you have a pissed neighbor. Had you just quietly dispatched the dog, all would have been well. The three S rule.

Dad's Uncle had a farm on King road in Bridgeport in the twenties. Neighbor would ride by on horseback every morning, taking his cows to pasture. He would smile and say "Good Morning!" Following him was his dog, which would then enter Uncle's barn, and eat his dog's food. Rather than have an issue with his neighbor, Uncle followed the dog into the barn one day, and closed the door. Every time he beat the dog, he yelled "Good Morning!" Next day, when the neighbor said good morning, the dog took off like a shot. He looked at Uncle and said, "Wonder what got into that dog?"

I say shoot the neighbor with the pellet gun. OR......there is a little place called Animal control that you can call and they will go talk to him, if it continues you simply call again and they will issue him a fine and continue to fine him with every call.

However, my neighbor across the road has this little yappy ratdog that insists on pooping in my driveway.......I prefer simply to go out with my shovel and fling it back over to their driveway....carefully aiming as to not hit their vehicles . I giggle every time I see them picking poop off their tires.

Take some video of the dog doing its dirty deeds and then file a complaint with the sheriff.

start collecting the poo and when you have a good amount go over to his place and leave it all over their front or back door which ever one they use the most.

Is there any kind of leash laws in your city/county?

Wait for the dog to enter the barn and close the door on it, see how long it takes for the owner to come looking.

Type it up or print it off then send it to them via certified mail.
Also inform the local pd of the threat in the past and the fact that the problem has continued amf that you've sent the letter. Cover your ass then do what you have to do.

I had a neighbor like that and I started tying his dog up at my house every time it came over so I would have the opportunity to have words with him.

But you're a rather large fellow
I say shoot it and bury it as its perfectly within your right to do so. He obviously don't care about his dog and will not be able to prove anything since he doesn't know where his dog is at any given time. The only problem is that you're on an open forum talking about it.

Hahahaha you got a point. He was also a rather small guy with a surfer dude accent. Last time I talked to him he hid in his house and refused to come to the door for an hour while I waited in his driveway. Finally he sent his 6ish year old up to say his daddy wasn't home. I could see the chicken shit watching through the blinds in the other room. He finally came out to talk or I should say listen. I haven't seen the mutt in over a year.

Have you flushed your radiator lately? Just trying to be a friend and looking out for your vehicles health during the winter months.
It would suck if you left the drain pan out for a couple days before taking it in for recycling and the dog drank it.

That's a horrible way to kill something though. It should not suffer needlessly because the owners a cock sucker.
