A Donkey's Tale: When Urban Sprawl Encroaches
by David Baron
All Things Considered, February 28, 2008 · Wherever city meets country, clashes develop over animals. Urbanites transplanted to rural areas often find the sounds and smells of livestock offensive, while many longtime residents contend that farm animals give rural areas their charm.
This is the story of one urbanizing community's attempts to save its rural character in the face of suburban sprawl. The result was an innovative policy to protect livestock ownership. The inspiration came from a donkey.
...the essence of nuisance law is "reasonableness," and what's reasonable can change as the land changes. In other words, even with the new policy in place, Golden Valley's livestock owners may have a hard time convincing a judge that animal noises are reasonable as the community becomes more suburban.
When you buy a game, you buy the rules. Play happens in the space between the rules.
