People still amaze me

We live just out of the city limits,, just had a loose horse come wandering down the road. I went and talked to one of our "good" neighbors,, and he said these 'renters' cursed at him the first time he took it back. I guess they keep this horse tied to a tree..... The horse did not look very good needless to say... I just talked to the deputy the county sent out that I called,, mainly because I didn't want the horse to get hurt by a car... He (the deputy)knew right where to go,, guess that's why we've seen them up here a Lot recently... They also got called (not by me) for underage children home alone. GOOD GRIEF... I hate people who treat animals bad,,, be it dog,cat, etc,, they can't help it... What I would like to do to those people I can not say here... Just had to vent a little...

YUP - the way folks view their "pets" (AND neighbors!) - and TREAT them, can be amazing - as well as the expectations and demands THEIR choice of a "pet" then often places upon their unwilling and unappreciative neighbors.

Just because THEY love their pets doesn't mean EVERYONE else shares their view, or appreciates the intrusion that "love" then involves them and THEIR wants or needs to as to lifestyle...

In YOUR case, it was your neighbor's poorly attended horses and their resentment at YOUR objections - in other very similar cases, it involves untrained and uncontrolled kids and dogs in campgrounds - different scenarios - but VERY much the same oblivious lack of personal responsibility, and indifference towards those nearby who are then unwillingly exposed in a choice they were not involved in - bur ARE affected by... :(

DW was still outside when the "person" came speeding up the road 'as usuall'. She wasn't even going to stop, but the deputy forced her to, then ordered her out of the car. They finally caught the horse, which didn't want anything to do with the owner, (imagine that) , and the deputy walked her and the horse about a 1/2 mile back home. She got a ticket,,, but not sure what for...

Perhaps for being obnoxious and stupid in public...

Probably a ticket for allowing the horse to get out again. Once or twice they make a report of, after that they start issuing tickets, then they can confiscate the animal for it's protection.
