    Here’s what happens when disputes get nasty. Can you get a whiff of the underlying antagonism?

    One day farmer Wayne Lambarth discovered a 250-foot long wall of dung near his land in Lodi Township, Michigan.

    ​According to Lambarth, the smelly fence was erected by his farmer neighbour after a land dispute erupted between the two. 

    "Normally they spread it on the field but they decided to make a fence out of it," Fox 2 cited Lambarth as saying. 

    Lambarth’s grandfather started developing a farm here a century ago, but then the property was divided and the dispute ensued. 

    The neighbour who built the wall said he did nothing wrong, but simply made a compost fence. 

    Local officials, for their part, can do nothing about the wall of dung, because it is on the neighbour’s property and not trespassing.
