'This stinks': Man erects 250-ft-long manure wall to resolve property dispute with neighbour
This stinks.Property disputes are common everywhere. They happen all the time between neighbours, relatives or authorities.In most cases, disputes relating to land or a house is settled after the intervention of a court. But many cases are settled out of courts, depending on the agreements of parties involved.Property disputes can be very confusing and controversial. But one recent case from Michigan has presented a new challenge, and a stinky one, for authorities.A man from the state has erected a 250-foot-long cow dung wall to resolve a property dispute with his neighbour.The victim of the case, Wayne Lambarth, who is fed up with the stink said the faecal wall appeared next door following a feud with his neighbour in 2020.“Normally they spread it on the field, but they decided to make a fence out of it,” Wayne said Fox2.Reports say Lambarth's grandfather had developed the Lodi Township farmland 100 years about he got into a dispute with a farmer next door over the property line. That's when the neighbour decided to build the fecal wall on his own by getting a huge supply of cow dung.As a result, the smelly barrier has become a nuisance to Lambarth and his tenants, Jaidyn Schwarzel and Coyne Gatto.However, the neighbour had a different reason when he was confronted. He said it is not a cow dung wall but a compost fence.Lambarth has said his neigbour would spread manure over his farmland prior to the dispute. But now, says Lambarth, the neighbour has built it into a dung-based divider that extends 250 feet.Unfortunately, local authorities can't do much as long as the manure remains on the neighbour's property.
