P was breeding foxes and put up a sign advertising the fact. D, who was trying to sell the neighbouring space, thought that this would deter buyers. Therefore when P refused to take down his sign, D fired guns along the boundary which, as he knew, causes foxes to avoid mating and kill their young. Court awarded P damages and granted an injunction. MacNaughton J declined to follow Bradford Corporation v Pickles, saying that cases of noise were distinct from cases of percolating water and that in noise cases like this, Christie rules apply so that there was actionable nuisance.
