    This is what happens when people run to daddy government to solve their problems instead of acting like grown ups and working it out on their own. It sounds to me like mutual investment in a good fence would resolve a lot of this.

    I would have to respond with"if he dog killed the bird on it's own property it was a missplaced ticket." The birds should be allowed to roam,but the owner of the birds knows his chances on the birds being killed by dogs. It sounds like they're going to luck out and the man is moving. I wouldn't want someone living next to me that would purposely run over an animal and drive away.

    Both are wrong. They both have free roaming animals. I have lived near peacocks: they are loud and they have no boundries. Just because someone has free roaming animals long term doen't make it right. The peacocks' owner basically said "I can't afford to feed them if they don't free range" . That doesn't sound like responsible animal care to me. The dogs owner had a dog that killed someone else's pet; also wrong.

    I don't think there is a good solution here.

    I agree. I've also had the pleasure of living near peacocks. Early every morning, they would come over and poop all over the roof of my house. Believe me, they are loud! But, because I enjoyed watching them prance around in my yard, I never complained. If the peacock owner can't afford to feed them, he should give them to someone who can.​

    You have to look at something else. The peacocks were there long before the neighbors. So they had to see or know about them before they moved in. Its just another example of city slickers coming into the country and trying to change it.
