Neighbor dogs need control. Two weeks running they have not let people out of their trucks at my gate. They harass my dogs and me and never mind my horse... They charge up to my fence and up to my gate (which is recessed on my property.) My camera is slow (and so am I!) so I have not been able to get photos of them at the gate which is what I need to really press the issue legally.

To get this documentation, I need information on a video camera that I can post at the gate. The house is 300 feet from the gate so hard wiring isn't going to work. Any advise on what to purchase for this? There's got to be something out there. Maybe a trail camera?

(BTW neighbor has started cursing me out semi-regularly - he's on 5 acres across the road from my 10)(Lovely.)

Thanks. This afternoon I think I got what I needed with my old slow still camera. Will try for more as I track down the FedEx driver the dogs wouldn't let out and wait for my good neighbor who has had a problem with these dogs gets back in town. Trail camera does sound like the ticket though.

Well, more fuel. Before today, I knew that the dogs/dog had kept a FedEx driver in his truck for 10 to 15 minutes; threatened to bite a neighbor; concerned another contractor a couple of years ago. Today I learned that two weeks ago, one of the dogs gave my lawn guy a hard time when he went to get back into his truck after closing my gate.

This WILL be stopped.

Middle, I didn't get my camera's today it will be a couple of weeks, I guess it either didn't notice the shipping time or they were out of stock. OK I just checked it had Prime but with a notice that it required extra processing time.

I hope you can get this resolved.

Thanks Val, I may not be needing the trail cam. after all.

I managed to get a second still one of the dogs at the gate - for the record today at 7:29 AM PDT ;P . So I have one right after they were talked to about this and another three days later. It should be enough to do something with, especially when coupled with other incidents.

Well, the lens cover didn't open completely so I'll be in the "market" for another photo just in case. I think what I have will do but I should be able to get a better one. I'm disappointed because I was so happy with having the camera out and ready for this one. Third time is supposed to be a charm so we'll see.

Good luck. I too was going to suggest a trail cam.

I guess I wasn't totally clear on this mess. July 5 I started dealing with the sheriff's office about this. They said it would be best if I got photos of the dogs ON my property. So that's what with the surveillance, photos, etc.
I worked on nailing down days that people were accosted by the dog(s) yesterday and was getting ready to submit this or call and see what they wanted to do with it (cops not neighbors).

Wellll, after the last "nailed it" shots were funky because of a lens cover that didn't open fully, tonight I did get some good ones. I've delayed going to the cop shop with this latest and I guess that's why (that I would get better photos). Didn't get everyone at the charge but got clear shots of two unarguably where they weren't supposed to be. SD will be so pleased that his discussion with the fine neighbors did little good. (he will not be surprised but I am sure that they are hopeful the fools will listen sometime).

Once I deliver the goods I know that sonny boy will resume cursing me at the top of his lungs.

Middle I just got the Trail Camera and set it up yesterday. Had it pointed higher than I thought but the Woodpeckers on the wooden electrical poll triggered the camera, lol had beautiful shots of the poll and the sky. But at 8 mg pixels (can go higher) the pictures were really clear in the day time. Got a black and white picture of my cat's face at night. I had 645 pictures and the card wasn't full. I had it set that once it was motion activated to take a picture every 30 secs. This little darlings can be used as security camera's also, pictures can be date and time stamped.

It sounds like you are making progress on the situation. I would think about getting a cheap MP3 player recorder and record the sonny boys harassment, in some states there are laws against that type of harassing.

Thanks Val.
I'll look into the MP3 player. I have a what is now ancient recorder but although small for the time, it would be awkward to tote around (especially when I'm loaded down with poop bag, not the tiniest camera and my flip phone -- need more pockets!)

Overall update:

Talked to deputy minutes ago. Will get a hold of him tomorrow and sign for them to be fined. I read him the part of the statutes about "dogs at large" which says they can be sited (or is it cited?) if they are away from property from which the owner can lawfully exclude others. I indicated that although we are on a private road, I didn't think they could exclude anyone from it. If they could, the other neighbors would join me in excluding certain two residents. So something will be done.

I will be looking into the MP3 player because I somehow suspect that I will be cursed for this. Ah well.

OK got deputy (not first but second one) out yesterday. Amazingly stressful just bringing this action. Didn't anticipate that. Now I need to let them know that the camera was recording standard time and not daylight time (just discovered.) So most times are an hour later than reported if we're talking daylight time.

Amazing process. Far more complicated than I expected. In Wyoming, you called, they were called, people delt with it.... Not so here.

Anticipate being cursed at once he is served.

It's absolutely not easy or pleasant to deal with this. Sounds like the deputies are helpful though.

When did you move from wyoming? I must be forgetting stuff (stuff!)
