We have an issue in our town about a farm. The farm has been there since the 1860's Just about ALL of the land in our town was at one time owned by the family that has owned that farm since the 1860's. Most of the beautiful mcmansions that dot our landscape were once farmland. Basically, no one that lives there now would have a home if the family had not sold the property in the first place.
But now that it's a suburb and not the country, the farm is "an eyesore" and "it stinks too much" and "why does he have to keep his tractors out all the time?". And "OH MY GOD. The cow just gave birth next to the street- that's animal abuse -call 911".
So yesterday when I was passing the farm on my way to my street less than 1/4 mile away, I happen to look over and see - a bull and a cow, doing what comes naturally for a bull and a cow to do. Right next to the fence. Right next to the road. For all of rush hour traffic to see. And I got home and heard the sirens. So I got back in my car and rounded the corner just in time to see the sheriff pulling into the farm.
Yes people, someone called the cops because the cows were having "relations" too close to the road.
The next thing you know, they will be requiring the farmer to put pants on the male sheep after they are sheared, because everyone can see their balls.
