I always said I wouldn't get involved in these "I've got a dispute with my neighbour, what should I do ?" threads. However, I could do with some legal advice, so I'll try to keep it brief...
Mrs MTG's daughter has got two pet rabbits.
I built a pen for them using the fence as one wall of the pen.
One of the rabbits rattles the wire early in the morning.
The neighbour complained about the noise.
Mrs MTG's daughter now moves the rabbits to a small portable pen on the opposite side of the house at night and back to the big pen in the morning.
The nieghbour still complains about the noise. I think whiskey, rats, nearby sheep and screech owls, not rabbits, may have something to do with it.
He said if we don't do something about it, he will.
Today, he put two trays of rat poison right by the gap at the bottom of the fence, partly pushed through to our side.
Mrs MTG mentioned this earlier and I thought she had done something about it.
I just found out she hadn't, so I jumped over his gate at 10pm and kicked them away from the fence.
So, the question is...
Is it legal to deliberately try to poison a pet rabbit under the pretence of trying to kill rats ?
