I need some help with this please. A man up the street from me came wondering down with a teenager who was holding a bag (for my rooster?). He confronted my about having a rooster that crows at 5AM. I live in an unincorporated area so I can have farm animals including crowing rooster....others around the area have them too. Anyway, after a bit of sparing, I turned my back and he walked away. I waited then followed him to see where he and the kids were going. I know where they live. Anyway, do you think I should report this incident to the sheriff? Is there anything to report or do I have to wait until he does something to my chickens?
I will appreciate any and all advice. Thanks.

If he threatens harm to you or your possessions, file a report. If he didn't and was just eyeballing you, he's probably having a ****** day. Chances are with this economy, he'll be buying or bartering for your eggs soon enough. Play nice.

Edited for language. This is a family friendly board!

I'd file a report anyway.

Have it on record. You write down EVERYTHING and keep records yourself.

Times you called the sherriff or police. etc...

Exact times he came by.. .who was with him. etc... Exact conversations.

I echo what has already been said but would also add this, put a lock and chain up. If they break the chain it will be way worse for them.
