I’d report him to animal control about the horse, honestly. And not in a tit-for-tat kind of way, but in a he’s-abusing-his-animals kind of way.

He sounds like a major asshole, and I don’t blame you for wanting to move so quickly.

You know what? You can call animal control on him. Do it with the horse. Horses get abused quite often too. I’d also maybe invest in a padlock with a key that you and your family keep hidden somewhere so that he can’t let your pup out.

He sounds like a dick, and since I’m deathly afraid of/hate chickens, I’d be hitting those things all the time. Definitely complain so you at least have some sort of recourse.

Sorry you are having to go through this, but I do hope that you reported him and his non-care of his animals to the animal control lady when she was there, so she could do a well check on his animals.

What a douche! I’d call animal control right back on him about his horse.  The padlock is a good idea, but is it possible to keep the dog in the house when you aren’t home? I don’t want to be a drama queen, or put any kind of bad thoughts into your head, but if this guy has shot multiple dogs because they get under his skin, a padlock won’t really stop him if he is really looking to cause trouble. I’d be concerned about him having any kind of access to the dog and it’s food/water.

I was glad to hear that you are moving.

If you weren’t I would remind you of the old saying “Good fences make good neighbours”.

When you move, take a plate of homemade cookies and go over and introduce yourselves to your neighbours.

Being neighbourly can prevent many problems. (not all).

@nqz100:  “I’d be concerned about him having any kind of access to the dog and it’s food/water.”  THIS.

My friend’s neighbours poured anti-freeze into her dogs water bowl because it went on their lawn. (Although the neighbours dogs constantly went on my friends lawn, but apparently that’s not the same thing. Double-standard-waving douche.) The dog got terribly sick and died before anyone got home. 

The dog and it’s water were in it’s kennel, with a lock.

that is horrible!!! I know over in australia in each local council we have a limit of 2 dogs and 2 cats per household unless you have a permit. Not sure if you guys have it over the US but i notify animal control of the numerous animals your neighbour has etc.

Good luck and i hope you dob that old man in

What a nasty neighbor! Take pictures of his animals on your property and the ‘gifts’ they leave behind. Report him to animal control. Wow, good thing you are moving soon!

Maybe it would be safer to keep the dog inside in a mudroom or baby-gated area when you’re not home.  I wouldn’t put it past that creep to do something horrible.

People make me so sad sometimes.  What a jerk.  Moving sounds like a good solution 😛

I would install a camera asap. ya know if he’s doing that (letting your dog out) so he has a chance to hurt him or call animal control) he’s probly done that to others & will likely keep doing this. ESPECIALLY if hes trying to hurt your dog. & this would get the law on your side. put up a no tresspassing sign, then press charges against him if he goes on your property & messes with stuff. i would hide the camera so he doesnt know its there. i would also make sure he cant put anything in the kennel. plus definately call about his horse, poor thing, i hope its treated ok.. sry using my phone so hope this makes sence! era

I’m a huge animal lover and have a sensitive spot in my heart for dogs. I agree with what the ladies are saying (install a security camera, padlock on the kennal and reporting to animal control about his horse). I think gingersnap is right about him having access to the dogs water and the possibility of him being able to tamper with it. Is there anyway the dog can be kept in the house while you’re away just until you move?

This guy sounds like a complete jerk and any reasoning with him would be useless and only make you more upset. It makes me sick to know people mistreat their animals (I can’t even watch the humane society commercial) I wish you the best and hope all turns out ok.
