' The decision said that Factly: Tied a bull to a tree near, the house and "provided the bull a plaything which caused his mother many sleepless nights. He tied a milk can to the tree, leaving it suspended in the air, and placed in it some rocks so that when the bull butted the can, terrific noises would result." • Placed an electric fence across the driveway, "so that his unsuspecting mother might receive a sudden shock." Caused the water supply to be shut off. Chased the chickens from the chicken house and placed iron pipes in the weeds nearby, "so that his mother would stumble and fall over them."
