Imagine if you would, attempting to prevent the rainwater hitting your yard from advancing onto your neighbor’s property.
Seems absolutely asinine, doesn’t it? It’s as though we, as mere mortals, should have some magical control over the weather, the wind, or the rain.
Yet this is exactly what one Australian vegan believes, after calling the policein an attempt to usurphis neighbor’s right to grill meat, all because the “odor” of cooked meat was doom was somehow offensive.
After thousands of people signed up for a community barbecue outside the home of an Australian veganwho took her neighbors to court because she could smell them grilling fish, the group’s organizer canned the event following reported threats from the woman’s legal team.
Cilla Carden, a Perth resident, took her neighbors to court over their constant barbecuing of fish, which generated a smell that she claimed stopped her from enjoying her backyard.
“They’ve put it so you smell fish, all I smell is fish,” she told local news outlets.
The courts ultimately dismissed Carden’s case, siding with her neighbors, but news of the lawsuit caused a stir among residents in the capital city of Western Australia.
Carden’s complaints have left a bad taste in the mouth of local residents, who believe that choosing to be a vegan does not allow you the ability to commandeer anyone else’s diet.
