Joe Watson-Webb, a retired showman, has come up with a novel way to deal with potential thieves: firing chickenshit at them from a 30-foot catapult (Right, from Daily Mail)
Local cops have said that they will prosecute Watson-Webb if he uses the catapult to defend his property against arsonists and robbers, but he says,
"I’m not out to kill anyone or even hurt them. I just want to keep yobs off my land. … This is a serious issue. People all over Britain are sick and tired of feeling like prisoners in their own homes and seeing yobs get away with it."
