A Georgia man was arrested after he allegedly tried to poison his neighbor's 4-year-old chocolate Labrador, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Sunday.
After searching the Internet, Blake Anderson determined that little green cubes in his backyard — some covered in peanut butter — were likely a type of rat poison.
That's when the 32-year-old installed surveillance cameras, allegedly catching his neighbor throwing two small objects toward his yard, the newspaper reported.
"It's like that show, 'To Catch a Predator,' (but) doggy-style," Anderson told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Police charged the neighbor, John Groover, 46, with felony cruelty to animals. His lawyer, David Zagoria, told the newspaper his client is innocent and that his client will be vidicated once the matter goes to court.
Anderson said his dog Pete survived the poisoning attempt, but did spend a night throwing up, and had rat poison pumped from his stomach.
This is not the first run-in the neighbors have had — several years ago, Groover filed numerous noise complaints, causing the pair to meet in court.
Neighbors testified in support of the dog, and the judge threw out the case, telling everyone to just get along, the newspaper reported.Click here to read more on this story from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
