Yes, keep a file and maintain records on everything
related to this case. I would even include hand-written notes with dates on them reporting your account of what is going on. Try and stay as fact-oriented, emotionless, and as reportorial as possible in your notes. For example,
Mrs. Jane Smith says in a conversation with my mom that he overheard "neighbor X" telling "neighbor y" that he set out tuna water laced with anti-freeze in his backyard.
It may not be sworn testimony but you need to keep the facts and the dates straight here. Keep records of all vet reports, vet bills, days and times you talked to the police or the ATF, notes re: your conversations with these people, etc.
Trust me on this file thing. It's enormously important to you being able to come across to any potential journalist or police or ATF agent as more-than-legitimate.
I really hope you find a way to nail this jerk.
