Cowbell dispute rings out in tranquil Bavarian town

Postby oneh2obabe » Dec 3rd, 2018, 2:33 am

Buy a house near farms and grazing animals then complain about bells and smells.

Life in an orderly and peaceful market town in southern Germany has been disturbed by a long-running legal battle – over cows and cowbells.

A married couple who bought a large house in the fields on the edge of Holzkirchen, south of Munich, are suing a farmer over the clanging cowbells on her cows, which graze in a neighbouring meadow.

When they first moved into their house in 2011, the field was empty, but in 2014 it was leased to Regina Killer, who runs a small dairy farm.

The couple, who have not been named, also object to the bad smells of manure and the accompanying insects.
Mrs Killer says cowbells are part of both Bavarian tradition and her livelihood.

The husband lost his original lawsuit against Mrs Killer in 2017. He is appealing against the decision at a court in Munich.
His wife has now launched a second lawsuit against the farmer.
Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

People will complain about anything and everything. Look at the Castanet forums. LOL
