A: Check with the humane society. Proof of criminal damage to property or abusing animals needs some foundation. The threat is probably, at most disorderly conduct. Proof he did something criminal is next. An at large animal may be in violation of township ordinances. Check with the Clerk. My best to you. A bigger problem may be your antagonistic neighbor next to you. Try to get some counseling on how to handle this issue, also.
