Neighbor should have had an unfortunate wood chipper accident after the first threatening encounter.Our north farm is bordered by land owned by an absolutely disgusting individual. Two years ago, we built a new fence which has been literally destroyed by cattle kept on the neighboring land. Our renter had some problems with the landowner about the fence damage. We knew he was overstocked and the cattle were starving but today we found just had bad it has become. We were clearing brush along another fence row and discovered a PILE of dead cattle in an out of sight depression. The side I saw was mostly just bones and dried hide but Son said he saw dozens of fairly fresh(less than a month dead) from a different vantage point.
An odd detail: Son also discovered one of those game cameras that send real time pics to a cell phone. It was semi-hidden and aimed toward our side of the fence like maybe they were concerned that we might see or investigate the dead livestock just across the fence.
I should report this animal cruelty case but am fairly sure it would end with something far worse. I'm not really afraid of this guy but he's a convicted felon and I'm not the only one who might be endangered. Thirty years ago this guy's wife left him and moved back to her parent's house with their kids. The guy burnt the parent's house with everyone inside. We've already had a 'guns out' confrontation and a couple of less deadly FTF 'disagreements' so I have little doubt that something similar might occur if it's even suspected I've filed a complaint.
We've been seen on the trail cam and the only ones who could/would be in a spot to see the dead pile so would be the first to receive retribution.
