I have tried many times to record the sounds or tape the beatings but often to late to get one which is clear enough. I think he caught me once, outside his gate when he was doing the repeated beatings. I couldn't see it properly so I held my handphone high only to realise he had CCTV. Good grief! The funny thing is, no one else seems affected by his behaviour with the dog though we all live around this horrid chap.....I wish he'd move away.
