Neighbor threatening to kill dogs! Anyone have any knowledge of laws/statues in FL?
  • My good friend's neighbor is threatening to kill/poison her two yellow labs. The dogs are never on his property and do not rome free in e neighborhood. He has also made other various threats which don't apply to the dogs. Most likely, he is all talk, but who knows!

    My question is does any one have any knowledge of laws/statutes regarding dogs in Florida? One would assume that there are laws to protect ones animals/property.

  • @Bucky Badger the man is just not right, the dogs have not done anything that could be construed as threatening. This man has been verbally aggressive and racially slurred my friend's lawn care people because of a few left over clippings that the wind blew into his yard. He actually threatened my friend's husband with a baseball bat beating after this post! I think it was because of the lawn care, not that it matters why! He won himself a restraining order for that threat.
    @Moishew the pups are registered with the county, thanks for that statute!
    @Saya cameras are being installed this coming week.

    This guy is obviously a lose cannon, with all his threats/behavior. He has a criminal record, not for violent crime, but for possession of drugs. I appreciative everyone's input!

  • There is a temporary restraining order because he was peering in windows shining a laser or a rifle scope above her head while she was washing dishes! He is a total nut, she is meeting with a lawyer tomorrow.
    There are some crazy, sick people in this world.

    @kerichelle, umm wow... that is above and beyond just threatening to kill the dogs.
    I hope you guys are careful. Get as much witness and photographic evidence as you can in case this escalates. Restraining orders are just words on paper to people like that.

Howdy, Stranger!
