Asked in Animal / Dog Law, Criminal Law and Personal Injury for Oklahoma

Q: My neighbor used weed and grass killer on a huge long strip of my backyard, i have 2 dogs, can I press charges?

He may have poisoned my dogs as well. He has threatened me and given warning by police. Ever since my husband passed he has been harassing, threatening, bullying, and even calling the police on me for no reason. Both the town and him has been taking advantage of the fact that i am disabled also, alot and im done feeling helpless and subject to their tactics against me. The town has done shady business deals and even sold property across tge street to him that didn't belong to the city, it belonged to an American Indian who wasn't using it.

A: It maybe advisable to ask to meet with a police officer to make a report just to document everything that has been happening. Next, you may want to speak to an attorney about getting a civil injunction against him, and maybe even a protective order.
