I tried to stay out of drama with my neighbors, I really did.
Dh and I bought our house a year ago. It's kind of in the woods and we have some space between our neighbors. I like it because I'll stay out of your buisiness if you stay out of mine, but....
Dh left for work this afternoon and then ran back inside, on his phone and in a panic trying to signal me to go outside. I had no clue what was going on. So he hangs up and tells me that he caught to large dogs that live at the house across the street mauling a small dog , so he called 911. He said he could see the two dogs jumping up and down and play "tug-o-war" with something through the trees and could hear the little dog screaming. He said the guy who lives there was yelling at the dogs to stop, but they didn't. By the time I got outside I saw nothing... whatever happened was over. I was nervous about him calling 911 over dogs, but honestly I think he just panicked and didn't think to call animal control.
So the police show at my door about 2 minutes later. They said they had gotten a report that a PERSON was being attacked. I thanked them for responding so quickly, but told them that no... my dh had called due to the situation with the neighbors dogs. So they took his report and then headed to the neighbors house, then animal control showed up too. Now, awhile back I heard a rumor that these people fight pitbulls, Something thats uncommon in a rural area like this. Even though any kind of animal abuse totally burns my ass I brushed it off because I had no idea if this rumor was true, and I'm not going to jump into my new neighbors buisness over some random thing that someone told me. But now, I'm wondering if it really is true... and I didn't tell the police when they were here only because I'm not going to cause extra drama over a rumor. I have never witness these people fighting pitbulls myself. Anyway, so now my good standing with my neighbors is over and it only took a year. Sigh.
Oh yeah, and so I was really hoping that the small dog would be ok but from what my husband described I doubt anything could survive that. I was thinking about calling animal control to follow up on the incident, but I'm not sure if I should.
