I despise my neighbor - Page 2

post #31 of 44
The neighbor on the right announced that she was a hermit. The neighbor on the right is a nice lady with grown children. We have an acre of land so we really can't see each other.

Yay for saving the squirel!!

That must be terrible to have a neighbor like that... My heart goes out to you and the animals!

Just an idea, though you've probably thought of it... If you can reach the trap with a broomstick, could you toss some animal repellent over there to keep them away so they don't get trapped? I know I've used used cat litter as animal repellent!

I don't see how he would care if you did something like that! Nor how it would matter if he did.

I truly hate people like that, and I really don't hate many people. Wildlife has ever right to be there. Just because you technically own a piece of land, it does not give you a right to harm innocent wild animals that may live on it. How could someone be so cruel?

Good job!

I hope you continue to be a thorn in his side.

I would call the animal welfare people, if he is traping and killing the squirls depending on how he is doing it it could be considered animal cruelty. If you know where your neibour is disposeing of the remains you might have the proof needed for humane law inforcement.

Hooray for you; so glad you were able to release the squirrel!
One word of caution tho---don't let him see you do something like that. He sound like a first class creep, and could make your life even more miserable than he already is.
Just a thought---could you offer to take the squirrels &/or rabbits to a nearby park and release them for him? Maybe he'd take you up on it (probably not) but at least he'd have the option. Altho' I'm afraid he'd come off with a stupid remark about how "the only good squirrel....." You probably know the rest.
Still, good work on releasing that squirrel!

It is a small garden with a couple tomatoes and peppers, not sure if the squirrels disturb it or not.
Years ago a crow fell out of it's nest and he put it in a cage. The mother kept circling overhead and squawking for her baby. He shot a gun at it, and laughed "that will take care of that". he was talking to his neighbor, he did not hit the bird. When it became apparent to me that he intended to keep this crow as a pet, he did feed it every day, I left him a note of the wildlife refuge number. After a week or so since the bird was still in the cage in his yard, I called the wildlife refuge (federal) and they sent over officers and took the bird. HE is such a creep. I will dog him every step of the way.

He's more than just creepy or mean - he's sadistic - to keep a baby from its mama???? And vice versa? Be careful with him. You don't want him doing something to your cats!!

Not to worry, my cats are indoors only. But you are right, I would not put anything past him. If he can't tolerate a squirrel in his yard, one can only imagine what fate would befall a cat.

What a horrible person.
Sometimes people like him get under your skin and stay there. He sounds like a real gem.
Are you sure he doesn't have a crush on you? Going around shirtless and cutting back the trees for a better view...Just sayin'.

You know if people don't want nature around them why don't they go live on a slab of cement.
He used to shoot squirrels from his deck with a bb gun until I reported him to the police. I guess now he just traps them, and drowns them. I know he is not relocating them, he is not that kind of guy. He has no clue of being "green" enjoying nature or anything. Y%#^&&Thanks for letting me share.
I feel kind of lonely where I am. I have absolutely NO NEIGHBORS! I bought the first townhome in a set and then the housing market went crash in Dallas and not a single unit more has been sold so I have no neighbors at all to contend with. There are empty units on either side of me. I can crank my Bose stereo up to maximum value and sit on the balcony blowing cigar smoke into the next door window and have people over screaming and doing obscene things. OK, I amend what I said, I used to feel lonely until I read your fine letter. I am sorry for you but it cheered my situation up.

Ha ha, it is funny you say that. A few years back after he butchered the tree real good, I made a comment to him that I think he may be doing it so he can see into my bedroom window.

Well, he just about blew a gasket, and he said "Lady, I wouldn't let my dog look at you."
I thought that was pretty funny, but unfortunately that bout of butchering killed the tree, and now I have to get someone out here to cut the top two thirds down. Now he is working on the healthy tree next to it. I have 5 weed trees that I dug up, that are going back there as soon as the dead one is topped. He will have so many trees to cut, he won't know what to do with himself.

ugh I had neighbors who would throw beer bottles in my back yard. I thought it was cause they were on probation and not allowed to drink so I told them feel free to throw your cans in my trash but it kept happening. Then one day someone threw a diaper in my back yard so I started throwing everything back over the fence. Now I have a 6 foot fence around my back yard and the cans were always on there side so I know it wasnt just an issue where they were blowing over. Some people are so rude. Thankfully one day they stopes.

Is this moron reaching over into your yard to cut your trees? I believe that by law he can cut any part hanging over his property. If he's cutting in your "air space" I think you could actually sue him for damaging/killing your trees. Like I said, what a moron.

He is leaning over a bit. It would be too difficult to prove and sue. I will just continue to payback as I can. when he stops, I will. So far, this year, he cut my tree again, and I freed a squirrel.

Last year he sprayed my vines and I sprayed his tomato plants that I could reach. Not sure if he realized where the black leaves came form. Vinegar will do that. HE didn't spray anything this year.
