Shocking

Written by 

There are many stories from ‘the impossible to believe, but believable’ files that your old mate is often told about.

However, the Hound reckons this latest one has to take the cake for the most officious, bureaucratic stupidity he’s ever heard.

We all know how silly some councils and their rules can be, but this one is a real doozy. Apparently, after receiving a recent tourist complaint about getting a shock from an electric fence, Canterbury Regional Council (ECan) has instructed the offending farmer to put ‘beware’ notices on his electric fences…

Believe it or not, the council actually made this ruling – despite the fact the camera-ready tourist actually got a shock after he’d put his camera through the fence to photograph the livestock. Give me strength.
