I would probably put electric fencing on top of the original fencing. I would hesitate to use barbwire as I have multiple scars from it (farm kid)

Last fall I found the kids that live behind us hopping over the fence, I told them nicely to come to the door and I would gladly get their ball. Their mother got all huffy about that one, but I knew in the summer I would be getting a large, territorial breed of dog and I was not going to take any chances, thankfully they listened and I have not seen them go over the fence since.

I think Texas is the only state where you can shoot someone simply for trespassing. Other states it varies quite a bit. In Washington they have to have crossed the threshold of the house and you need to be in fear for your life.

Some states have laws against boobytraps, which is probably where trespassers are able to sue if they get injured by something like that.

The kids haven't been back yet, either, that I know of, but they're normally not around during the week. Just the weekends.

The next time they're over, just pull a lawnchair right up to the fence and stare at them blankly the whole time they're in the backyard.

Throw a ball over their fence and then go retrieve it. See how they like it.

I will do this. Maybe I'll sit a random baseball bat next to me. They won't know if it's a silent threat or a silent plea to let me play with them.

You should stand there in batting position, ready to hit the stray balls back over.

Different cities/counties/areas of Texas vary in their castle laws but generally speaking our castle laws are vey strong, which I like Personally. In the city they are more strict about how much deadly force you can use & when. But out in the boonies it's different, we are so remote that there is no police force within a reasonable radius, the best thing we have here is county cops & they could be an hour or better away, which is why the castle laws are so lenient out here, that & many people have goats/sheep thus also have LGD some breeds of LGD will go after ANYTHING harming their flock, weather it be animal or human, so dogs are included in the "use of deadly force" clause.

Maybe the next time you are out there & so are they, tell them every toy/ball that comes over your fence belongs to you & the dogs & they will NOT be getting it back, see if that makes them more careful.... Til you hear back from your IC that is. It's a better solution then sitting in a lawn chair staring like come creepy stalker or something ... That MIGHT get the cops called :lol:
