I created thisaccount because I don’t know what else to do or where else to go for help.
This all started last summer… Last summer all 3 of my pets (2 dogs and 1 cat) were poisoned with pesticide. One of my dogs , a schnoodle named Tiffany, did not survive the poisoning. I caught my next door neighbour, an old man (over 70 years old) in between our houses spraying pesticides over my fence with a professional grade chemical tank.
I watched this helpless from my window inside not knowing at the time what he was trying to do (kill/ poison my pets.) He quickly retreated back to his house when I confronted him from my window and asked him what he was doing as he sprayed the air and over my fence with his pesticides. He ran away like I just caught him in the act (which I did).
The very next day all three of my pets started convulsing and foaming from the mouth. My dogs and cat are like family members to my parents and we love them more than anything. To say the least, this was the most traumatic experience of my life and that I ever went through and I have been through some shitty times . This by far takes the cake. They were so sick throwing up white foam and gagging. I still have nightmares every single day about this event. I can still hear the sound of them convulsing which will probably haunt me for a very very long time probably the rest of my life.
We took them all to the vet immediately where the vet confirmed they were poisoned- she could not say exactly with what kind of chemical. She had to put one of my dogs down who was in her old age and did survive the poisoning. “ Luckily” my Australian Sheppard survived as well as my cat. They had to spend a few days at the vet on an IV to cleanse their systems from the poison/ pesticides. Thank god my Australian Sheppard and cat survived.
We went to the police station immediately and filed a report and the police said they would talk to him. That’s all they did about this situation because I did not have it taped on film for proof. They suggested we install cameras to catch him in case he does it again / throws something over the fence or comes to spray again. that’s exactly what we did and we now have cameras all around the perimeter of the property. And trained on the fence between our houses.
Last summer was the worst experience of my life and even after the poisoning , Istill to this day, I am so scared to let my cat and dog into the backyard. I wonder every time if I am exposing them to his chemicals and if he tried to poison them again.
Now it is spring time and I am basically waiting for the pet poisoner next door to strike again. It’s just a matter of time before he comes back with his pesticide tank or tries to do something sneaky between the fence. I am not joking when I say he is the creepiest evil man who wants to poison my pets just for the kick of it and because he hates animals and dogs more than anything.
Is there anything else I can do to protect my family and pets from this pet poisoner next door? Any tips and suggestions or stories of people who have been through a similar situation would be extremely helpful and appreciated. My family has never done anything to this man in our lives to cause him to want to hurt us / my pets. We don’t keep the dog and cat outside, they just go out to the backyard to play.
By The Way.. His own grandson told me if he ever got a dog his grandfather would kill it. He is the most creepiest evil old man you can possibly imagine. I have pictures of him just staring over the fence into my back yard . He spit at my 3 times, stares at me while I’m in my bathing suit and gives me the freaking creeps like no other. I feel like I’m trapped in a living nightmare and horror movie. When I confronted him about this he literally horked a loogie and spit it in my face. There is No talking to this evil man in hopes he will stop.He has done many other criminal things in the past such as poison every ones trees including my own but has never bothered my family like this before. He lives right beside us.
Please help I do not want to see my pets poisoned again. I feel helpless that police did not do anything more at the time. When I get the proof on tape , I will pursue legal and criminal action against him but in the mean time, is there anything else I should be doing? I will not lose my other dog or cat to this mad man who gets kicks out of killing trees and pets. Greatly appreciate any help I can get I feel totally helpless and alone.
