questions & answers

Question: My next door neighbor has a 4 yr. old autistic grandson who keeps throwing toys and small objects over the block wall into my back yard. He has also thrown a rock and smashed his mother's car windshield. You'd think they'd keep these projectiles out of his reach or supervise him better! I have small dogs who have already chewed plastic toys into sharp pieces, and I worry about them choking or getting hit in the head. What are my rights, and what can I do?

Answer: You may want to speak with the neighbor about the hazards of throwing items over their wall and injuring your pets.  Sometimes Mediation can help work out the problem.   If it continues, you may want to contact the police to see if they can speak with the neighbors.
