How can I stop this stray dog from destroying my property?

A stray pit mix wandered up to my place a few days ago and has begun chewing on my car, destroying my brand new bumper and puncturing the sidewall of a tire. I called the Sheriff's office and a deputy was sent out to tell me that I can put the dog down myself but there's nothing they can do. I don't have the means to kill this dog, nor do I want to. What are my options? [more inside]

Where can I buy these parakeet/small animal chews in bulk?

My budgies love love love these chew toys and are about to chew their way through a third of these, made from the same stuff. But at $10 a piece, it's getting a little ridiculous. That first link says they're made of yucca -- is there somewhere I can either buy these toys in bulk, or just get ahold of tons of the raw (dried) material and cut it up myself?

Chewing Pens

YuckHabitFilter/NeedMoreToWorryAboutFilter: Say you tend to chew on plastic pens while working, despite efforts to stop. Aside from the obvious Googleable dental detriments (tooth wear) and, um, choking risk I guess, are there any other dangers, esp. ones not grounded in Freudian analysis? Are you ingesting scary levels of leeching plasticizers and resins? If so, can you litigate? Kidding...
