Vegan woman suing neighbors over barbecue smells wafting into her yard in Australia


The meat of this Aussie woman’s lawsuit is barbecue.

Cilla Carden, a vegan who lives in Western Australia, has filed a suit against her neighbors, claiming their grilling is causing her stress.

“They’ve put it there so I smell fish. All I can smell is fish,” Carden lamented. “I can’t enjoy my backyard. I can’t go out there.”

She had taken her case all the way to the Supreme Court of Western Australia, citing her neighbors’ barbecuing, smoking and shooting hoops, reported Australia’s 9 News.

The massage therapist, who lives in the Perth suburb of Girrawheen, has accused her neighbors of intentionally creating these nuisances.

A lower court threw out the case in February, reported The West Australian.

“What they are doing is living in their backyard and their home as a family,” said the State Administrative Tribunal of Western Australia, according to the Evening Standard.

Carden had allegedly filed nearly 600 pages of documents in her appeal, “well in excess of anything that might be thought to be proportionate to the issues,” said Supreme Court Chief Justice Peter Quinlan.

“I’m a good person. I just want peace and quiet,” said Carden, who added she intends to continue her fight through the courts.
