WIthout taking up too much time and being too wordy, I have a neighbor (she lives in apt over the garage, so very close neighbor!) Who is just bad with animals. We already rescued a dog from her that my aunt took in and she still has one very sad gsd that is neglected and because of this has behavioral issues ( hes a nipper, and since he is a fairly lg powerful dog, his nipping can be very very dangerous.) She sees nothing wrong with berating the poor dog and beating him whenever she sees fit. We have been working with animal control, but unfortunately she walks the very fine line between legal and illegal treatment of her dog and I cant come up with solid proof...anyway. She also is not a very sane woman- thinks people tap her phone, record her conversations in her home, steal random things from her home just to mess with her, etc. Today I came home to find that she has purchased a lamb...one single lamb that she plans to keep tied out in the yard, without shade or shelter. Within minutes of having the lamb here, she let her gsd off its chain and it promptly attacked the lamb (thankfully it did not injur it). Well, my hope is that someone here can offer some advice as to what the laws for animal cruelty are in Maine, what might be the best approach for dealing with her, how to help the lamb... Anything that might be useful. I am in no position myself to own sheep atm, and my husband and I have worked very hard to seperate ourselves from her ongoing shenanigans. But I also cant sit by and watch the lamb suffer if I might be able to do something to help it!
