I would contact the police.I would take pictures of the bowl with the rat poison and even use an ipod to record conversations between the neighbours.Additionally I would secure the fence so that he could not get through in any way. Is there something seriously wrong with this guy????This is awful!!

I personally would file a police report if I ever found something like that again (or if you still have it). Is it possible to lock/secure your fence? They also make motion detectors you can run along a gate entrance, that would only help if it happens while you’re at home though. :/

You need to file a polie report asap!! Apparently these people are nuts if they are trying to kill your boggies!

Police, security cameras and never let the dog outside by itself. That’s sickening.

What a disgusting monster.

Document EVERYTHING- get photos of everything you can and write down when you spoker to them. Type up everything and go to the police. They will take you more seriously (my dad’s a lawyer, and he’s always saying “document it!!”)

i would suggest some kind of security camera too but the problem with this is i think its quite expensive, and often the quality of the footage isnt that good

does the grandson have some kind of learning difficulty/mental problem? i find it hard to imagine a 30 year old poking dogs with sticks

id contact the police, though i know in UK (where im from) the laws protecting animals dont seem to be that strict, especially if there is no direct proof who it was. maybe find out your state laws regarding animals?

Is a fence extension a possibility? They’re not the prettiest things but it would probably keep him from getting anything over the fence.

Is the grandson mentally ill or disabled? I cannot comprehend someone doing this otherwise. It doesn’t excuse the behavior regardless.

Document everything. Dates, names, incidents, photos, etc. File a police report. Perhaps you could contact a dog rescue or some sort of local animal association and see what advice they have?
