    HI everyone. Firstly, this is off leash bush land. I never allow my dogs off leash otherwise.

    I too am concerned that there are dead wildlife. But when you look at the numbers of new birds born, all waiting to migrate for winter, the numbers will be attracting predators. Shit, ive even considered it myself. Brace of Duck for Xmas anyone?

    He's got to be the type of old git, that punctures kids balls that come onto his property.
    Lets hope the Karma police puncture his.

    There are some wader birds - on some SA beaches that migrate from Siberia or somewhere not much fun... They come here to breed, but if a dog scares them off the nest - they quit the nest, and don't come back whether there were chicks, eggs or not. it's not doing their long term survival much good.

    I wouldn't let my dog off lead in bushland - she's not that great at leaving the wildlife alone, starting with snakes. I've seen dogs do bad things to lizards, echidnas, all sorts. So I can understand the old git's concern, but he really ought to get it be declared a dog on lead reserve instead if he's worried. There's already national parks where dogs are not allowed at all.

    There is a wetland nature reserve close by. Those birds can go there.
    Old git who likes to threaten women, Karma police should be knocking his door, i dont need to pick that up. He's in his 70's, has a anger issue, shouldnt take too long for them to catch up with him. Meanwhile, no sign of said git over past 2 days.

    Hya, I thought all National Parks were dog-free zones? Local reserves are often dogs on leash areas. And you can usually take your dog into State parks on or off the leash, depending on where it is. And then there must be lots of bush land where there are no written rules on this, I imagine. There is a LOT of bush here!

    I love wildlife, but there has to be some balance that allows humans - and their dogs - to share some of the spaces where they like to hang out.

    I don't live in the bush, but we have plenty of wildlife in the city in Canberra, including at some of the many off leash areas. It doesn't mean that it's ok at all to let your dog chase or even injure or kill wildlife, but they do have a right to co-exist.

    Well Beloz, there is my land, which grumpy git crosses as there is a access right of way.
    Adjoining this is a signed "Off Leash Dog area", including a small lake area. this is so called 'green belt land'. Cannot be built on till council decides it wants to sell it in the future and can get that passed the green party.

    nearby, there is a wetlands reservation area that is dog on leash area so i don't bother to go there.

    Neither of these places are national parks. And i share your understanding that no dogs are allowed in National Parks. State Forrests and your fine. These can be on leash only, or under control < nice vague statement there.
    I am very confident that i am walking on/off leash, in correct areas, I am a bit of a stickler for this, this was not an issue over on/off leash, more an issue with being threatened and intimidation.

    I get it. I've had some really bad experiences with people overreacting to my old dog - who looked kind of scary to some. I once had a guy throw a brick at her because she approached his dog. Both dogs were off leash and he didn't say a word to me! Even though my dog had near perfect recall and I had no problem with people asking me to call her back.

    More Old Gits, the place is crawling with em!

    Its sunday, im cookin up a storm, family and dogs all settled for a film, when..... knock knock

    Its another old git. On my doorstep, and Bernie and Pohm have used the opportunity to slip past old git and take a leak on my lovely lawn, grrr. Old git says, and i kid you not, this is the opening line.
    "Ive not come to make friends, i like to keep myself to myself"
    ?
    what am i sposed to respond to that? So i ask if i can help? He asks if im the home owner? I said yes. He says his name is Allan, and he lives next door. He cant get back to sleep at night, as when he gets up to use the toilet, as soon as he puts the light on, my GSD barks his head off all night long.
    ? Ive not heard this myself. Which is odd. But possible maybe?

    So i say, "im sorry you are being woken, i wasnt aware the dogs were barking. Bernie is at this point, rounding him up. The guy is being pushed into the house by Bernie. Some gaurd dog eh? Pohm's sat at the guys feet, pleading for a pat. Guy is nervous. So i tell dogs to go in, which they do.

    Then old git says, that he cant even take a piss at night now. And that's a problem. (way too much information), its coz of my prostrate (even more information i dont need). I stop him.

    I said id have the dogs sleep inside, see if that helps? He politely but in an old git manner, reiterates his complaint once more. And leaves.

    I didnt hear the dogs bark last night either. But will call round to his house, not to make friends of course, just to ask how it went.

    this place is seriously crawling with old gits. People are living way way too long clearly I realise ive moved into an area, where most are oldies. In family homes, but kids long gone. They have forgotten what tolerance is about. His JRT barks all friggin day long! At anything that wanders past the back. Ibis included! Do i complain? nope.

    Bernie

    I'm wondering if this guy with the JRT is actually being kept awake by his own dog.

    There's no way my dog can bark her head off at night without me knowing about it. She sleeps right next to my bed.

    The old guy sounds like he needs some community care - ie someone to take him to the doctor and get his prostate sorted. Our council offers this, and some churches do too. Maybe you can get some brochures and put them in his letterbox.

    And the other joy of being way too old - is not being able to remember stuff properly. Maybe you could ask him for some contact details of his family and have a chat with them about it.
