In Santa Rosa, California, a man forced by the city to reduce the height of his fence has protested in an unusual way. The man had built a 6-foot-tall fence on his corner lot so his dogs would have a place to run and couldn’t easily get out. However, he was ordered to cut his fence in half after a neighbor filed a complaint with the city, claiming it obstructed the view of oncoming traffic for drivers at the intersection, according to Oakland station KTVU-TV. He complied, but put a bunch of na.ked mannequins in some outdoor seating visibly in the yard. The display also features a sign that reads “Reserved seat for the nosey neighbor that complained about my fence to the city.” The man says so far he has not had any negative feedback.
