We are senior citizens in East Windsor, Ct. We have made many complaints to town officials of a large pitbull dog next door (15ft or less-between mobilehomes) that has 8 weeks of urine and feces on the ground in 6ft high stockade fence. THEY DO NOTHING for months. Does anyone know how very unhealth this is??? We live in a barnyard. Any suggestion????

yes it is very bad to live next to that, you will usually not find any help in animal control, the animal is not loose and it is feed, their biggest issues.
you may have an issue with the run off, if the water run off from this is comming into you yard you may have a pollution problem, also most cities have zoning that includes clauses for odors and noise.
Keep complaining, write formal complaints, sent them certified, get notorised statements. then if you have to get the news involved. You may find a lawyer with a ax to grind with the city that may do a case against them, and of course you may have a personal case against the dog owner.
