My yard hippie called tonight to say that someone has dropped off another dead dog. Solid Waste hasn't picked up the first one yet so at least they won't have to make two trips.

I called the police and filed a report.

critter cam time. dead critter cam time. also maybe put up a sign that says, i am allergic to dogs. please disposed of your dead canines elsewhere. Or else make a sign that looks official like it's from UT and have it say that some lab really needs dead dogs and they will pay $1000, but you have to call first to make sure it's the right breed and they will come pick it up and pay you. Then give your # and when they call get their address and send the cops. Just remember to answer the phone, "UT dead dog lab, may I help you?"

I like this, especially the UT Dead Dog Lab part.

That is really odd. What could that be? Do the dogs look injured, abused, sick?

There are easier places to dispose of dead dogs. Glad you called the police as this may be someone (or more than one) who doesn't want you or your yard hippie there. Leaving dead animals on someone's porch or driveway is, I discovered, a rural way of expressing extreme dislike.

That was my first thought

I most certainly hope not, though

Thanks For The Tip

I didn't know this. In a way it gives me hope that the dumping will stop when whoever it is stops being mad. (Although I do worry about where they are getting the dogs.)

Perhaps my yard hippie pissed someone off with one of his political protests.

I keep thinking what an odd form of passive/agressive communication this would be.

Sort of like the conflicting statement some nice southern ladies are making when they say "bless her/your heart."

For those in the culture, it sends a very clear message--it's not passive-aggressive, it's threat, intimidation. "See what we can do? Piss us off some more and we'll escalate." That's why you need to keep the police informed. One dead dog might be someone just dumping a dead dog (though a rural roadside is more common.) Two dead dogs is a communication.

My guess would be that your presence and your yard hippie's presence are seen as a threat to some ongoing activity--you have a phone, you can call the police, in an area where whoever it is was not previously observed doing whatever they're doing. They'd like to scare you away. It's possible, though, that the developer who was so angry with you is behind it (not as likely as someone involved in drugs or prostitution, along with theft and vandalism.)

Escalation's possible. In a typical approach, a mutilated dead animal hung on your gate, the house, or other building would be the next step.,

We Communicate A Bit Differently In The Suburbs

The developer seems to be barreling along with no concern for what I think and I've taken no recent action that might draw his ire.

My yard hippie thinks is just someone dumping their dead dogs.

But I'm a bit concerned and will be alert to any sign of escalation.

We'll see what happens next...

How horrible!

I hope they pick up the dogs quickly, chop, chop!
