I live in Cassowary Coast Regional Council area, on a rural acreage block. My neighbour has a dog that regards my driveway, which runs alongside the common boundary, as its property. It comes onto the property and barks and snarls at me when I walk or drive past. As it has grown older and bolder, I am now afraid of being bitten. I cannot walk the driveway any more, and cannot get out of the car to check my mail, put rubbish in my bin, or mow the driveway. I made a complaint to CCRC nearly six months ago. They are still saying the complaint is under investigation - Animal Management (cats and dogs) Act (2008) and refuse to give me a timeframe to complete their investigation. They have told the owner to register the dog and set up a rope run, which they have done, but the dog is never on it. There are no fences. I have sent Council 25 photos spanning 3 months of the dog acting aggressively to me on my property. I expect the Council to issue a Declaration of Menacing Dog, but they are sticking to "under investigation" and nothing changes. How can I force them to comply with their own legislation?
