Tops the list. Been a problem since we moved here over 20 years ago. Makes me want to literally bust someone in the head with a baseball bat.
I'm talking about the sorry #%$@^ SOBs that can't handle their own pet problems, and deal with them by dropping their animals off in someone else's neighborhood.
Many of the animals we have kept over the years have been ones that people drop off, and that find their way to our house. There is a simple rule that dictates if an animal has a chance to stay, or if it is moved along to the shelter. I have dogs, cats and horses. The rule is that every animal has to get along with the others. That means dogs don't chase cats, dogs don't bother horses, cats get along with each other, and cats don't hiss and slap at dogs.
Things have been going pretty well over the last several years. Generally running 6 to 8 cats (all were drop-offs or offspring of drop-offs), three dogs (two were drop-offs) and currently one horse (sorry, we purchased the horse!). Dogs don't chase cats or horses, cats get along fine. Dogs, after 4 years, still are wusses about deer moving in woods at night, still have to go running to the edge of the ravine, barking.
Well, tonight, we have two new dogs, not by choice. Both look to have a little pitt bull in their faces, but not much, with one having the body color of a blue tick hound, and a heavier face with definite bull dog in the jaws. The other is almost a twin to a brown mixed breed hound dog that we have had for 5 years. Both the new dogs appear to be in good condition, and both are friendly to people, but they are both chasing the cats and barking at the horse, which make both the cats and the horse pissed, resulting in several claw marks on my arm and back tonight!
Both dogs are female, and I would not be the least bit surprised if they were pregnate, though they do not appear to be at the moment, and they both act like they are 4 to 6 months old.
The thing that really pisses me off is that I will be the one that has to take these dogs to the pound, will have to listen to my wife and daughter's misery knowing they will probably be put down, and I will have to pay a fee for them, just because some sorry, no-good, low-down scumbag purporting to be humanoid is too sorry to take care of his own problems!
Some people are not worth the lead it would take to make them assume room temperature.
Sorry for the rant, had to let it out. Can't find the ashants that drop off the animals, which is probably a good thing, as it is probably the reason I'm not in jail for busting someone up!
