I have been dealing with this problem since I moved into my house last August. Increasing the children have been terrorizing chickens i keep in the backyard and damaging my property (3 families living in a single house next door - no the house isn't THAT big to support 3 families). I have a fence around the perimeter of my home but not up my driveway which is how they access my property. My other neighbors and I have witnessed them picking up my items such as watering cans, sticks, wood planks etc and throwing them at the chickens over their containment fence. They have torn up plants to throw those at them too(came home to the aftermath). The problem subsided for a couple of months after several (very heated) discussions with one of the young mother's about the behavior and that the children are NOT allowed on my property. I came home yesterday to all my baby chicks having been let out of their confined run and my other, very wonderful, neighbor informing me that they children were beating on the wire cage of the run and also harassing the adults with sticks. I haven't gone to the police yet, I am not even sure if they would do anything. As a bit of side information, I believe they are from India and Muslim based on attire - I mention this because so far I have only talked with the women and I wonder if because it is typically a male dominated culture if talking to the husbands of the three wives will result in a bit more respect of my property. I have noticed that they seem to wait until no one is home so I parked my car in the garage so that tomorrow hopefully they will think no one is home and I can confront them in the act. Does anyone have any input into my situation? Do I have any legal options?
