Gets some dogs for starters, they run off (to my property cause I board and train dogs). "I'm sorry, I guess you're mad? Nope. I help with a hot wire. Next, he's got a horse for his kid. No corral, no care, months go by, I notice the horses hooves looking like ski ramps. I mention it. "Are you mad"? I didn't know you needed to trim the feet. Nope, I'll have my farrier stop by. Horse died. Then the 2 beef cows for his freezer...Boy, he's off grid now! Pit Bull dogs attack the cows ( he still has no secure fencing), cows tear down my 6' chain link fence to escape. "Are you mad"? "I'm, sorry they tore your fence down" so I treat the shredded ears and chests of his cows, herd them home. Here come the chickens and the goats and the PIGS!!! Still, no secure fences. Goats climbing and ruining my chain link, getting their horns stuck for 8 hours is full sun, 100 deg heat, screaming bloody murder. I intervene. "Are you mad"?  Well, sorta by now...  On to the pigs. City Slicker gets 2 hogs to raise for his freezer. OMG! Hey OC! They're intact boar wild pigs, not meat pigs! When you cook them, it'll smell like you peed in the fry pan! Here they come, tear my fence down AGAIN! "Are you mad"? Yup, now I am. So, OC cop dude is too busy to feed or clean any of his critters. They beller all day and night for food. Back to the pigs. I'm overrun with flies from his filth. He does not clean. I have a fly spray system, I clean everything twice daily. Dude has 2 hogs, 5 dogs, 25 chickens and 20 goats on 1.25 acres. It's nasty. Back to funniest City Slicker...I hung 5 fly bags on my fence. When he noticed them he said "I guess you're mad"?  It's comical. 


You got me mad that you have not contacted animal control to have the guy taught how to care for his animals or have them removed for abuse. I am sorry to sound gruff but if they are as bad off as you indicate that is animal abuse and they have no voice for themselves, and someone needs to speak up.

Hello there!

Oh but I have....that's why he is worried, always asking if i'm mad. It just didn't fit into the context of the story. I actually worked for animal control until a few years ago. I did what I would have done as an officer. Notify and educate, offer solutions and follow up. Hot wire to keep dogs safe, hoof care and de-worming for the horse. Horse died of colic anyway. I had AC confiscate his neighbors Pit Bulls for dangerous at large violation. The second time the pigs came through my fence I was done and told him so. My AC buddy did a welfare check. Second time the goat got stuck in the hog wire he put up to keep the goats in, I called an AC buddy again. No abuse or neglect found. He's putting up a safe pen for the goats. Seems he was feeding the goats, they're not skinny, but he fed them when he had time, so they would beller all day or night! Now he knows they can yell all day, but not at night (he works nights so it didn't bother him).  He's cleaning up.  He has to move his hog pen 15 ft from the fence. I tried to be an understanding neighbor, but wouldn't let the animals suffer. The flies are still unbearable! There's no zoning violation or over limit violation so my next call will be to vector control, as city slicker just brought home 10, 30 gal drums of fermented grains (whatever breweries use to make beer) to feed the pigs. That'll help the flies! I hope he realizes he's overwhelmed and starts reducing his numbers. I meant this as a funny post about just how ignorant folks can be. All he ever says is "are you mad and Oh, I didn't know that" Wow.
