    I live right at a beautiful covered bridge..

    Yesterday some guy from Maryland pulls in my yard and parks to take pictures of the bridge. Then proceeds to walk across the street and enters my fenced in pasture to take more pictures. I made my husband yell at him. His response was "I just want to take some pictures" Thankfully our cattle were in the pasture on the opposite side of the street on this day since we do have a bull in with our girls. What ever happened to respecting people's personal property?

    I agree that he should not have been on your property w/o permission. he could be injured by one of your animals or by falling in a hole. the proper response from him would have been, "I apologize for being here w/o asking. May I have your persmission to take some pictures from this angle?"

    Might want to try a "WARNING: BULL PASTURE" sign on the fence. Or a nice "trespassers will be shot" sign should make your point. It is rude that people think they can just go where they want in an open space.

    Quote:Someday I'm gonna follow someone home who thought it was alright to trespass in one of our fields or pastures. Then I'm gonna take pictures, take a walk around their yard, dump trash, shoot a few birds, or whatever it was they were doing on my property. When they get ticked I'm gonna tell them I'm just doing on their property what they were doing on mine!!

    Sometimes I find it amazing that people don't think about asking permission. People have no idea what is on your property! While thoughtless to enter the fenced pasture, what kills me even more is that he would stop in your yard!!!

    Seems that disappeared a while ago and I missed it, too. A developer put up a sign for wooded lot for sale- I actually had people looking in the windows in the early am! Gee, the property was only a 3/4 mile down the road! They got an eyeful, until I called the developer and told him I had moved his sign and why. He was nice enough to apologize.

    Glad your DH was there, who knows what would have happened if the bull had been there! Get some No Trespassing, Beware of Dog signs up fast! [​IMG]

    People who live in the city usually do these kinds of things as they don't under stand land boundries. I live in the city and have a neighbor who walks his dog in our cultisac and he stops to let his dog poop on my lawn. IM tempted to pick it up with the shoval and put it back on his lawn when I get 4 or 5 piles.

    there is a campground across the street from me and i get people all the time comong knocking on my door after hours to see if they can check in cause they got stuck in traffic and the main gate is now closed...

    and the one that tops is off...

    the city is only about 1.5 KM from my house and once a year the campground holds a MAJOR weekend festival called the hillside festival...well the city folks feel cause the campground is full they can ask me to can in my front lawn..I dont ever once remember seeing a sign "OVER FLOW CAMPING THIS WAY" sign on my lawn...

    another thing that gets me is they want to "rent" space in my driveway to park their RV..

    sometimes it makes you wanna slap the stupid outta some people...lol
