9-15-2014 appx.1320 hrs. Hertford County Animal Control begins something. She's slowed to a 5 mph windows rolled up and nearly stops at the front gate. She eye balled the front real good about six dogs in the front at the time. She rolls down a little bit and checks out the side creek, while in her high dollar sun glasses. It has been a over cast all day, but maybe she though they covered her face so she'd not scare the crap out of the aussie's. This is Betty Jo Barmer, and were sure she's up to something no good, but of course. We have infrared red video surveillance front back woods, and sides everything is wireless, and live feeds right to the phones. So what ever there up to there will be footage of it, And so begins the harassment once again. Never a dull moment.
This was when it first started March 14 2014
This is one of those Deja Vu moments Feb. 3 2016
Never did figure out what this was all about. Sure was an intense situation for me for them to show up in that many numbers. Maybe it's just intimidation because it was rather intimidating to look out my door and see this again. The conversation started out ok, but then they started acting odd and wanted me to let my 7 dogs inside the house out so they could see them. I told them to get a warrant I really have nothing more to say. I called my lawyer and started taking some pictures. The two cops left, one animal control officer stayed at the gate the other went to the truck and got inside. I went back out and spoke with Bobbie Jo Barmer she said all was fine here. But she said the same to me last time too when they stolid my aussie's. So why did they come in numbers like this to begin with? I'm not that scary at least I don't think so. Hell, I'm a old guy they got the guns. So far they left me be scents this day, but I haven't rested easy scents what they did here two years ago. I don't think I ever will again. This didn't help the issue any now did it? Awww dag gum it, this sort of thing just gives me the screaming shits.
