I think my neighbor injured my dog.Q:
My dog always barks at the neighbors dogs through the fence in my backyard. I heard my dog yell, when I went outside to investigate, my dogs face was full of blood, and so was the fence, there was a young man outside in his backyard, I think he hit my dog, what can I do?A:
Cruelty to animals is a crime. Contact the police and SPCA. Hopefully they will investigate and will make an arrest if they have enough evidence. However, it was unclear if the young man you saw was your neighbor or if you knew his identity. To avoid future problems, consider altering/covering the fence so the dogs do not see one another and your dog does not “always” bark at your neighbor’s dogs. Good fences may make good neighbors, but not all of the time.
