Winder man, whose dog was suffering a seizure in front of a Barrow County
sheriff’s deputy, said he thinks a neighbor may have poisoned the animal
because he’s threatened to shoot it before.
According to the incident report, the Beach Creek Circle resident told a deputy on March 4 that a neighbor he wasn’t familiar with knocked on the door and threatened to shoot his dogs because they had been entering his property and leaving trash strewn across the yard and back deck.
The deputy noted, “I observed one of his dogs, in the front doorway. The dog displayed seizure-like symptoms.”
The owner said he had never seen the dog do that before and suspected the neighbor poisoned it. The deputy suggested the dog also could’ve eaten something from the trash and that made it sick.
Later, the deputy spoke to the neighbor, who admitted to threatening the dogs, because they were on his property and one of them became aggressive when approached. The neighbor said the dogs have been coming on his property and getting into the trash for two months. He denied trying to poison the dog.
The deputy determined no crime had been committed and he “cannot show, in any way” that the dog was poisoned.
