    OP-Personally I would be making **** sure the PD was well aware of the threat to YOU, as well as your horses. I would probably play the "poor helpless southern belle" on this one and go to them asking for help. Play it up, and maybe you will get somewhere. At the very least they cannot say they weren't aware.

    I don't know where you are OP but where I am it is illegal to utter threats -- this can extend to uttering threats to harm your animals/property rather than just you. Please don't waste any time -- contact your police department and get a case file started on this. In the meantime, I know you've got budget considerations, you may want to look around for other accommodations -- who knows, something good may show up. Take care.

    I second talking to the police and cameras.
    Also, ask about hunting laws, as someone said. Here we also have laws about shooting near a highway or private residence. I would look into that as well.
    All else fails, set out traps or snares where the fences are getting cut. Maybe you'll catch a surprise.

    You probably need to do more than call, cops are pretty good at blowing you off, you need to see a magistrate and swear out a warrant. Use the magic phrase, "I fear for my life".

    Hunting season in Georgia only goes through January 15th. I would do whatever it takes to get out of there. For what you are paying, you can surely find something better. What is stupid is that you are paying WAY more than the deer hunters are. The land owner is a moron. You need to move somewhere else. I would not want to live where morons rule.

    Once you do get to move, I'd take a male friend along. They already made threats against you and crossed the line into actions (even if not physically harmful YET) to your horses. Don't want them crossing the line when they find out you are doing what they don't want you to do (leave). Not saying they will do anything, I don't know them by any means, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

    Seconding the decision to get out of there ASAP. I wouldn't want to be alone with men that think it's ok to threaten my animals and me. Also seconding the talking to police to at least get a paper trail started.

    When a cop tries to blow someone off ask for his/her supervisor's name, write it down, and then ask to speak with that person. My father would always say "If perhaps you are having difficulty doing your job, I could speak with your supervisor". It never failed him nor me.

    You can most definitely report this. Especially since they have admitted shooting another animal.

    I would report it, say that you are single and scared. I would move asap.
    If your rent is paid in full, just find another place and get out.
