How co-incidental that the minute I come back to the forum, my neighbour does something appalling.
I have just heard my neighbour strike their dog. The dog screamed. Not yelped, Screamed.
I leapt out of of my seat (about 20 feet away from an open window to their yard from the office) and yelled through it - "OI!" followed by " If you hit that dog again, I'll hit you!"
So, when is it right, and when is it wrong, to step up involvement to RSPCA and/or the law? Do I assume that this is a one-off and "remember" and suck it and see, or do I call in the back-up straight away?
I cannot tolerate abuse to animals of any sort, and this infuriates me. I am typing now with the trmbles I am so angry, so I need some advice that is separate and not mine.
