Neighbor Throwing Food Over the Fence

I moved in June back into my old house. It has a full wood privacy fence all around my yard. There have been no complaints from anyone about my dogs. They are non aggressive, babies. For a few weeks I have dealt with my pups barfing one then the other. That has stopped. Last night, well, after midnight, I let them out and noticed them licking the ground. Then I saw the two frozen cut up chickens, two. Right outside my kitchen door. On that side there is an apartment building that is very very close to the back of that neighbor's back yard, a side of his back yard hits my back yard. I have never seen them in the back yard ever, and they do have a large dog I have never seen outside, but it barks at my dogs. Nothing I can complain about just barks and not all the time. Advice?

You are going to have to catch your neighbor in the act. Maybe you can put up a surveillance camera or stay up at night. It is going to be very hard to prove who did it if you don't have evidence.

Without seeing what is happening, you can't accuse anyone. It could be hawks or racoons dragging the food into your yard either under or over the fence.

I would be very worried about your dogs eating something with bones and choking. Did the vet check them after they had issues with vomiting to make sure they are not being poisoned if this is something intentionally being done, which I pray it is not.


I would keep the dogs out of that area until you get this resolved.

You can either take shifts with other family members watching the area or invest in a video camera and tape (not an inexpensive option). Can you narrow down times so this doesn't because a 24 he watch?

If the neighbor's dog barking bothers you, you could have a nice chat and see if you can work out schedules so your fur kids and his/her fur kid are out at different times to stop the doggy conversations!

Post back what you learn!

That is just weird and scary. I would invest in a game camera that can be monitored. Maybe even a video doorbell. I think I would also set up lights that can be turned on when the dogs are outside at night. You could open a conversation with this neighbor by asking if they have found any food thrown into their yard.


You may learn something that way. At least they would then know you are aware of what someone is doing. pghgirl is correct that raccoons can drag garbage all over the neighborhood. Good luck figuring this one out. Let us know.
