We have cats; the folk opposite have two lurchers (who are rarely if ever walked, by the way).
A couple of nights ago, one of their lurchers got out of their garden, where they are allowed to roam unleashed and unsupervised, got hold of one of our cats on our property, and now our cat is at the vet being operated on to hopefully fix an internal injury.
I can't find any definitive answer on t'web about what legal recourse we have, if any, to impose some sort of discipline on these lurcher owners. We have given them stuff from lurcher forums on lurcher-proof fencing, etc, but I don't know what else we can do.
Obviously they will be receiving the vet bill.
Does anyone here have any experience, knowledge or helpful advice? Is it worth contacting the RSPCA…?
