Where I used to live, the neighbors labs used to use my yard as their personal potty, then run around the neighborhood getting narrowly missed by cars. I reaported them frequently to our 1 remaining underfunded Animal Control person, after trying once to talk to them personally.
They were fined a few times, but after awhile, the people at animal control just laughed and ceased to be surprised. In the end, the Freds won, we moved.
But then again, they weren't evil, they just didn't care - about anything, as taking a look at all the stuff their 4 kids left all over the yard proved. I even called city code enforcement once when they left their old Christmas tree laying outside between our houses for about 6 months.
