Well I live in Indiana,USA and the next door neighbor is threating to shoot our dog if it gets out of the fence again even if by accident.He has called the sheriff and the sheriff kinda ignored it as if its not against the law.Well its a misdomenor to shoot a dog but everytime the dog gets in his yard it knocks his trash cans over and tears trash all over his yard.Also he had a trophy deer head that got chewed.Anyways whats your oppinion.If a dog gets in your dog and tears up your yard and animal control has been called multiple times would you get tired of it and ignore the consequences or would you do it the lawful way and go after them with every fine possible?
