Man Installs Electric Fence Around Property After Getting Sick Of 'Kids Trashing Garden'

Man Installs Electric Fence Around Property After Getting Sick Of 'Kids Trashing Garden'

A man in the United States has put an electric fence around his home to keep school kids away.


According to Bryan Tucker, from Sandston in Virginia, living in close proximity to a bus stop meant he often had children going into his garden, leaving litter behind and damaging his property. So Bryan decided to take matters into his own hands and install the fence.

Speaking to NBC last September, he said: "We've been warning people for years.

"We called transportation and they refused to do anything about it. They said it was my responsibility if the kids get hurt on my land and that I need to tell them to get off my land and stay in the street.

"I'm not in charge of other people's children."

He told WTVR that he had to pick up and get rid of rubbish left behind on a daily basis, so came up with the idea of installing the electric fence.

However, not everyone is a fan of Bryan's new fence, with several neighbours speaking out to say that it could be dangerous and the local authority telling him he needs to remove it.

One neighbour told NBC: "The first day of school, really? C'mon now. It would have been different if it was a few days later or something."

Another neighbour suggested a middle-ground, chipping in with: "You know, a regular fence."

The fence was up for just one day, when Bryan was slapped with an order telling him he had violated a city ordinance and would have to remove the fence.

Henrico County Public Works Director Steve Yob told NBC: "The code says not to erect, construct, place or maintain any bumps, fences... in a road, a ditch made to drain the road, or an off drain from ditches.

"Engineers did research and the gentleman's yard starts further off the road from where the fence is. Where that fence was put is clearly county right-of-way."

He added that Bryan is unlikely to face any charges as he 'made a mistake and offered to correct it'.

Meanwhile, a defiant Bryan has said he would simply move the fence.
