    Contact your local building department or clerk's office. If the fences were put up without a permit, that is an ordinance violation. I don't know of any residential areas that allow barbed wire fences of any kind. Call them, and the inspector will come out and investigate. Hope this helps.

    Woodtick is right, again.

    I would not even approach the neighbor. Anyone ignorant enough to put barbwire on the ground is absolutely unreasonable and any hope of an intelligent conversation was lost a long time ago.

    Let your town's Building and Zoning department take care of this situation for you. Report the infraction and sit back and watch what happens.

    In our town, we can, for a fee, file a copy of our land survey with the town clerk. I suggest you do this as soon as possible.

    I am also dealing with neighbors who are unreasonable and I have resigned myself to the fact that sometimes you just cannot make sense out of nonsense. My dad taught me to either kill them with kindness or kill them with silence.
