A neighbour has seen fit to buy a dog for his kids and has just left it out in the back garden where it is barking and whining non-stop, all day, all night. This has been going on for a couple of weeks now but they seem to have now left it in their garden permanently to look after itself. I have looked at the RSPCA site, but the advice is not clear. I cannot see into their garden as they are a couple of doors down. While the noise is annoying, it is not quite bad (i.e. loud) enough to warrant getting the council involved. What should I do? -Ignore it and hope it goes away/dies? -Confront the neighbour? He is a six foot something Greek/Cypriot bloke with a bad temper. -Steal the dog and take it to Battersea? -Kill the dog and bury it? -Report to the authorities?
