- An irate farmer has taken reactive action against a man who wrongly parked in front of his farmland
- He made a metal fence around the visitor's car to drive home his displeasure at the man's action
- The farmer's action sparked reactions on social media with many backing his action against the erring visitor
A farmer has taken an act of unusual revenge on a man who parked car in front of the gate of his farmland.
The yet-to-be-identified farmer, in a Twitter post shared by a US Councillor, Emily Durrant, went on to construct a fence made of metal around the car to prevent it from being driven out of the spot.
Emily, a councillor representing Mid Wales and Llangors, said the said farmer was upset by the visitor's action and warned that citizens should respect farmers working place and not take it for granted.
''We are very welcoming of visitors, they are very important to our local economy and they bring a lot to the area. But people must respect the fact rural areas consist of working landscapes and they should be treated as such. It's the same as parking in front of someone's storefront.
''It's an amusing picture, but the message behind it is a serious one. All we ask is for people to be considerate when travelling to rural areas and to be mindful of their surroundings.''
Many tweeps took sides with the farmer and said they would have done more than what he did.
"I would have left the fence up until the owner came asking. Then I would have royally screwed with him so he learned his/her lesson. However as this is a BMW I really don't think anything gets through those THICK SKULLS of theirs."
"You should have padlocked it all with chains, I'm 100 % behind every farmer trying to protect their right of way."
"What absolute plank parked in front of the gate when there was about an acre of space around them."
The fence was however removed after the deed made rounds on social media.
In other bizarre Briefly.co.za news, some people honestly have no chill. A man driving with a large snake while on a busy road is one of those people. In a clip shared online, the man can be seen with a snake curled near the windscreen of the car.
The clip, which was posted by @Advobarryroux, shows the man trying to keep the snake calm as it moves to face him while he and a passenger travel in the black convertible completely aware that they're being recorded.
"Madoda and then? A whole snake?" he captioned the strange clip.
