Cou­ple sue over cow­bells & sh*t

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A SLEEPY mar­ket town has been dis­turbed by a long-run­ning le­gal bat­tle over cows and cow­bells.

A mar­ried cou­ple who bought a large house in the fields on the edge of Holzkirchen, south of Mu­nich, are su­ing a farmer over the clang­ing cow­bells on her prized herd, which graze in a neigh­bour­ing meadow.

When they first moved into their house in 2011, the field was empty.

But in 2014 it was leased to Regina Killer, who runs a dairy farm.

The cou­ple, who have not been named, also ob­ject to the strong smell of ma­nure and all the in­sects it at­tracts.

Mrs Killer said that cow­bells are part of both Bavar­ian tra­di­tion and her liveli­hood.

The hus­band lost his orig­i­nal law­suit against Mrs Killer last year, but he is ap­peal­ing against the de­ci­sion at a court in Mu­nich.
