Okay, so for the last few days, this neighbor's son, Donovan, who I think is somewhere around 6 years old, has apparently been trying to get into my neighbor, Miss Joan's yard, so he can get to her Yorkie-pom mix, Addie. However, Miss Joan doesn't like Donovan, because he apparently did something bad that pissed her off, but I knew some little kids in the past have tried to climb into her yard in the past to play with her past dogs, so I didn't pay much attention to it.
However, a few days ago, my brother told me, that Miss Joan told him, that she saw Donovan and his siblings and/or friends, trying to play fetch with a Labrador named Teagan (who is the sweetest Labrador I've ever met!), but when Teagan didn't go after the stick, the little kids decided to take any sticks they could find and start HITTING TEAGAN WITH THEM! ONE OF THEM WAS EVEN TRYING TO USE ONE TO POKE HER IN THE EYES!!!!
It gets worse though! Earlier today, Donovan and his siblings were trying to get to Addie again, only this time, they were poking sticks through the metal wire in the fence and at one point, Donovan POKED HER IN THE EYE!!!!
Now, Addie needs to go to the vet because there's puss or something around her eye now (it was that serious!) and Miss Joan told Donovan's parents that whatever it costs to fix Addie, they're going to pay for it! But guess what each of Donovan's parents' responses was:
His dad: "But we weren't even there." WHO CARES THAT YOU WEREN'T THERE! YOUR BRAT OF A SON HURT A DOG TODAY AND HURT ANOTHER DOG A FEW DAYS AGO!!!! AND IF YOU WERE THERE, YOU SHOULD HAVE FUCKING STOPPED HIM!!!
His mom: "He was just being a kid." NO BITCH, HE WASN'T! NO CHILD IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD HURT A DOG LIKE DONOVAN HURT ADDIE AND TEAGAN! MY BROTHER EVEN POINTED OUT TO ME THAT DONOVAN SEEMS MORE SADISTIC THAN USUAL, WHICH MIGHT BE PROBLEMATIC IN THE FUTURE! KIDS HURTING DOGS, ESPECIALLY DOGS THAT BELONG TO OTHER PEOPLE, IS NOT "KIDS BEING KIDS", THAT'S FUCKING ANIMAL ABUSE!!!
So, yeah, I'm very pissed off about this! Miss Joan hasn't taken Addie to the vet yet, and I have no idea how Teagan is now, hopefully she's okay. But i swear, if I see Donovan from my living room window, hurting either of the neighborhood dogs again, I will give him FUCKING HELL AND NO HOLD BACK! I love Addie and Teagan and I would get extremely furious if any harm is to come to them!
Unless anyone can suggest a more pacifist method to deal with him, because I kind of don't want to get in trouble, but I'm quite protective of Addie and Teagan and might let my anger get the best of me if either of them get hurt.
What do you think I should do?
