Hi, I just moved out to Hood RIver not long ago and I have been having a heck of a time with a neighbor. THings have been turning upside down here. First, they closed The Dalles shooting range, so I don't have many places to go shoot. Second, I got a neighbor who is really annoying. This is a town full of arrogant snowboarder/extreme sports people. And, although all that is cool, when they get in my face or start causing trouble with me, then I no longer tolerate all the crap. First of all, my neighbor behind me has a nice house with a big backyard. He has a giant oak tree with a beehive. COnsidering, I live on a busier street, it is really annoying, but the bees swarm time to time. I've had 1000s of bees in my yard and some of the swarms congregate on my tree. Last week about 500 - 1000 bees swarmed my tree and I had to call a beekeeper to get rid of them. The neighbor said he would kill the bees, but never did. I had a beekeeper who said he would take the hive, but he would not let the beekeeper take the hive. Ok, well the bee issue has been one pain in the arss, but I was willing to let it go.. Now, I feel the last straw has been broken. He has a 3-legged dog he lets run all over the town. I don't understand why the police or animal control hasn't confronted or taken this dog by now. Anyhow, the dog runs all over the place and craps all over the place. The dog crapped on my patio a few week ago. I know its his dog, because I catch it in my yard time to time. ANyhow, today I go out in my frontyard and there is dog stuff on the ground. So, I have to pick up the dog stuff. I knew it was his dog, but what confirmed it was his dog, was later I walk outside and I find his dog running all over my yard and decides to take a leak on some of my plants. The dog is deaf and 3-legged due to an accident. Obviously, the guy just doesn't give a crap about his dogs. Ok, here is the caveat. The guy is supposedly friends with my landlord. MY landlord goes over to his house and hangs out time to time. I told my landlord about the problem, but it appears he says he doesn't want to get involved. IT also turns out the guy lost his brother in an avalanche just recently , so he may not be in the best state of mind. I am really conflicted what to do, especially since the guy just lost his brother. However, this guy just doesn't have the right to go walking all over his neighbors. I live in a nice neighborhood and surprised this prick can go about stepping on his neighbors toes without any repercussions. I already confronted him once about the bees and now I am afraid to confront him about the dog. I"m debating about going to police, animal services or whether to go back and confront him. I really don't want to escalate this problem, but I am sick of cleaning up the guy's dog crap. Perhaps, next time, I just take the crap and throw it on his front doorstep :bluelaugh:. Probably not the best option. LOL I surprised with all the liberal PETA members in this town, nobody has confronted this guy Anyway, any rational-minded person give me their opinion about what they would do in this situation. Remember, I live in a small town and don't want bad blood. I know if I report him to the police, I may have to be looking over my shoulder; not that I am not prepared, but I don't want to live this way.
