Anyone know the laws and dog protection in KY
I had a horrible weekend. We have major issues with our neighbor, in fact this weekend he came over on my property, knocked on my door to confront me with an issue rather than ask. After I promised I would take care of the issue he then went on to scream and yell at me going as far as chasing me in my own yard with his walking stick. This is not the first time the old man has came at me in the last two months the other time he came at me with his fists. I told him I was going to call the cops if he didn't leave my property he came at me harder screaming to call them. I did, my luck it was his nephew and that didn't get anywhere the old man took charge of everything fussing about why he came over on my property to begin with. It also came out that he hates us living next door to him because we have animals. (We have a farm with goats, horses, chickens, pigs, etc.) He informed me that we could stay where we were as long as we got rid of the animals, the officer agreed. When we moved here we made sure that we were in our legal right to have them and we are. I raise dairy goats for part of our living, but with the old man and his nephew we are being forced to sell part of our living because as he says "he hates animals".
OK, that said and with him being physical, I have this question. My GSD right now is a little ways from being any kind of protection at 11 weeks old. But where do I stand since she is with me all the time if she does happen to jump on this old man if he comes after me again, which I'm sure he will. As after the officer left he said he enjoyed what he was doing to us.
Moving is financially out of the option or I would right now today. So, I just want to know since we are in KY where we stand if she does happen to go after him as a general protective dog. She is not going to be trained in protection, but I also know these dogs are protective of their families. I don't know for sure she would, but. I tell you I am scared for my life against this old man other officers I've talked with said he has no business on my place, but unless they see him on my place I have no grounds to do anything.
Well, I tell you he is on our property all the time because he brings his dog on our property to do his business. My dogs are not allowed to even look over there without him raising world war 3, but it is alright for him to bring his dog over here. If I say anything then here he comes at me.
