Virginia Man Installs Electric Fence To Keep Kids off His Lawn

There were so many other ways to handle this...

Listen, we’ve all experienced terrible neighbors at one time or another, but this guy he’s a different kind of horrible.

A Virginia man said he was fed up with children trespassing on his property, so he installed an electric fence to keep them away.

We’re talking kids — not farm animals.

Bryan Tucker’s house is just feet away from a bus stop in Henrico County, WRIC reported.

After he installed the electric fence, some of his neighbors called police saying Tucker did not put up a warning sign. The potential safety hazard alarmed some parents. Completely understandable.

Tucker told WRIC he installed the fence because he grew tired of kids throwing trash and walking on his lawn.

He said, “I’m not in charge of other people’s children.” Going on to say, “all I can do is protect myself, and that’s why I’ve got a fence up.”

County officials later asked Tucker to take down the fence because it was on an easement, making it illegal. However, he’s allowed to re-install it if he keeps the fence at his property line.
