    A Naperville man was found guilty of trying to poison his neighbor's dogs.

    Sure, a neighbor's barking dogs can be an annoying problem, but one Naperville man took things too far when he came up with a morbid solution.

    William J. Carboni, 44, was convicted of attempting to poison his neighbor's three dogs, reports the Naperville Sun.

    Last summer, Carboni's neighbor called police when he found raw meat in his backyard that had been tainted with mouse poison, said police.

    A veterinarian checked out the man's collie and two basset hounds, and all the pets were in perfect health.

    An investigation led police to Carboni, according to the Naperville Sun.

    It probably had something to do with the fact that he had called police at least three times to report his neighbor's barking dogs. The officers who visited his home, however, considered the complaints unwarranted.

    In March, Carboni pleaded guilty to attempted aggravated cruel treatment of animals. Recently, he was ordered to 300 hours of community service, placed on two years of probation, and must pay fines and legal costs, reports the Naperville Sun.

    Fortunately for the dogs, Carboni has also reportedly moved to Aurora.
