the neighbor's pitbull strikes again. @ 11:56 pm

feelin kinda: : angry pissed the fuck off.

Yet another installment in the ongoing drama.... Today the neighbor's pitbull decided to randomly attack and pull off one of the fence pickett's. All three of our dogs happened to be in the backyard at the time, and our boxer Chico ran over to defend his territory... The pitbull got a hold of Chico by the neck and woudn't let him go. My mom was on our side of the fence and the neighbor was on his side of the fence both trying to put the dogs apart. -- The neighbor finally got his dog to let go and we rushed Chico to the vet.

He had a very deep gash in the front of his neck about 2 inches long. Several stitches and a $300 vet bill later, and here we are again.

The is the 5th time that fucking dog has attacked one of our dogs... it has killed one of our dogs, bitten the tail off another... this is the second throat gashing, and another dog lost a toe.

I just don't understand wanting to keep a dog that is that fucking vicious... I am not anti-pitbull. We had a pitbull for a brief time... in fact the pitbull we had was one of the victims of our neighbor's dog.

For fucks sake, the neighbor's pitbull killed one of their other dogs before it ever attacked any of our dogs... what more has to happen before they do something about it. Our neigbor has a 2 year old daughter...what if that fucking dog attacks her? will that be enough for him to do something.

When my mom tried to talk to him, all he said was "it takes two dogs to fight." -- what complete and utter bullshit. His dog is the one doing all the fucking attacking, that has ALWAYS been the case. Chico wouldn't hurt a fly.

If I didn't fear retaliation, I would throw some poison meat over the fence in a heartbeat... but I know our neighbor all to well... we have known him all our lives... if we did anything, we would have slashed tires and broken windows, not to mention our dogs would end up dead as well.

We have called animal control before... but since their dog didn't actually enter our backyard, they won't do a fucking thing about it.

It is just a fucking shame to be afraid to let our dogs out in our own backyard.

OMG! In Logical World, that guy should pay for your vet bills and the dog should be killed. grrr.

Do you share a fence or how are your properties lined up? What I would do if it was possible, put an electric wire on the outside of your fence. Your dogs couldn't get to it, but the other dog might think twice about coming near. Don't get one of those little dog units, get one for cattle.

yes, we share a wooden fence. I agree he should pay for the vet bill, but he would never do that because that would infer some kind of blame on his part and he claims that this is not his fault.

Our current plan to is get chicken wire and line the entire fence with it.
