“I have little doubt these activities were initiated by the Murrays and designed to inflict fear, nuisance and harassment against the Gallants,” the judge told the paper.
This story of neighborhood warfare started in 2013, actually. It was in that year, that the Murrays dumped the manure-wall one random night at 4 am. You know, as if seeking revenge on your neighbors via wet, stinky cow shit didn’t already make you a calculating prick.
“I called Lee Murray on his cellphone to complain, but he hung up on me,” David Gallant told the court in an affidavit. “The manure was fresh, unseasoned, wet, raw manure. The smell was disgusting.”
But justice fell on the Gallants' side, as the judge awarded them $15,000 in damages. As the Herald explains, the judge “also issued an injunction forbidding the Murrays from entering the Gallants’ property; spreading manure within 300 metres of their property; blowing snow, rocks or manure onto their property; and communicating with the Gallants, except in writing.”
So the moral of the story here is, erecting a manure mountain isn’t the best way to settle a dispute. You'll likely have to pay thousands of dollars to atone for your poopy, poopy, ways.
