Woman allegedly hit dog with golf club

Woman accused of hitting neighbor’s dog with golf club over poop

A Florida woman is accused of attacking her neighbor, and her neighbor’s dog, with a golf club because she was angry that the dog pooped on her lawn. According to Click Orlando, Sylvia White confronted Gloria Stepp and her one-year-old dog on Monday morning.

Stepp detailed the alleged attack to a 911 operator, “I was walking my dog and she came across the street and she hit me across the back with a golf club and she hit my dog and she said, ‘The next time I see your dog I’m gonna shoot it.'”

Details behind the alleged golf club attack

White allegedly went after Stepp and the dog because of a “dog poop” incident the week before. According to Stepp, her dog pooped on White’s lawn last week and before she could return to clean up the mess, White confronted her verbally. The accused attacker apparently knew that she had done wrong…when the police arrived she appeared to be dejected and said “I’m in trouble.” White explained that she was upset because she had recently upgraded to St. Augustine grass in her yard.

    I don’t understand hitting someone for such a stupid reason but I do understand that people just don’t want poop on their lawn. We need to always carry bags or maybe it would have shown the homeowner, that she meant well if she went up to the door and told her she was running home to get a poop bag. Some people work very hard keeping their lawns nice. BUT SHE SHOULD NEVER SHOULD HAVE HIT THAT DOG!

    My honest first reaction was for the lunatic woman to be beaten with a golf club and then shot, but then I realized that “carma” and ‘hell” will inflict a much stronger (and longer) punishment. Hopefully, “karma” will come quickly! Thankfully, “hell” will hold a special place for her forever.

    Tell Sylvia White to take her “St. Augustine grass” and stick it where the sun don’t shine! Her actions over a “dog poop” incident which happened a week before is reprehensible. The woman had cleaned up the mess the week before and it doesn’t sound like she was letting the dog “go” in her precious yard after that so why the assault! I hope they throw the book at this loon, thank god she isn’t MY neighbor, she hit me an MY dog, I would be sitting in jail for assault!

      Really, to get bent out of shape over grass is idiotic. I don’t care if you have gold plated grass – to react so violently shows this Sylvia White woman needs some serious help. I am only pissed that this bitch hit the dog – who, if White had any brain cells would realize the dog doesn’t know – they poop wherever. But she took a golf club and hit the dog and threatened to shoot it – this woman is not playing with a full deck – if it were my dog, she’d be in the hospital and I’d be sitting in jail.

    I would say this “woman ” is possibly having issues with “ANGER MGT” what is she going to do if a small child throws a ball or kite lands in her yard… Yes, I know “dog poop” is quite a different issue… but If she had to hit something. she should have hit the PET OWNER for allowing her dog to defecate on the homeowner’s yard.. The OWNER KNOWS RIGHT FROM WRONG her poor dog that suffered the results doesn’t… CARRY DOGGIE BAD AND A POOP SCOOP !!!! I hope the home owner is mandated to go to mental health for an evaluation!!

    Hit this bitch with a golf club and I wouldn’t have a problem doing it. I am sure this POS isn’t that clean since she looks like low class trash. Somebody needs to bust her head open and I wish it was my pleasure to do so.

    I suppose this beautiful, refined cheerful-looking Rhodes Scholar won’t serve a day in the free hotel. I’d love to see somebody beat her fat behind with a golf club! (Is Michael Skakel available?)
