By the time Orange County Sheriff deputies arrived on Calle Arcos, a couple of neighbors were in their own residences.
The problem, though, was a canine that wouldn't remain at his dog house.
A Rancho Santa Margarita man called the Orange County Sheriff's Department because he was upset his neighbor allowed his dog to continually defecate on the man's property.
Both parties were angry with each other.
The call was made Saturday, about 12:30 p.m.
