Vegan Cilla Carden sues neighbor over ‘meat smells’, she can’t sleep, counter protest BBQ set

An Australian woman had made headlines for suing her neighbor over the meat smells while they cook, saying it’s ‘devasting’ and preventing her from sleeping.

“They’ve put it there so I smell fish, all I can smell is fish. I can’t enjoy my backyard, I can’t go out there,” Cilla Carden told Australia’s 9News.

Carden, from Perth, has sued her neighbors because she’s fed up, not only with the smell of meat around her home but hates that her neighbors smoke cigarettes and that their children play basketball.

“It’s been devastating, it’s been turmoil, it’s been unrest, I haven’t been able to sleep,” she said.

Carden actually took her complaints to the Supreme Court.

“It’s deliberate, that’s what I told the courts,” she said. “It’s deliberate.”

One of Carden’s neighbors gave in to her complaints by removing his barbecue pit and telling his kids to stop playing basketball.

The other issued a statement to the Australian news outlet: “Ms. Carden’s demands were proven to be not reasonable and indeed were to the detriment of the other owners ability to enjoy their lots in a reasonable and acceptable manner.”

Carden also demanded nearby families dim their patio lighting, keep their pets quiet and not put so many plants in the common garden.

The Supreme Court Judge and the State Administrative Tribunal have sided with her neighbors, dismissing her case.

On July 29 by Chief Justice Peter Quinlan, who said the 400 pages of evidence were “well in excess of anything that might be thought to be proportionate to the issues.”

Quinlan added: “Ms Carden was given a fair opportunity to present her case, and the learned tribunal member conducted the proceedings fairly and appropriately.”

The tribunal continued: “What they are doing is living in their backyard and their home as a family.”

So, a Facebook event has been created called “Community BBQ for Cilla Carden”, on which more than 2000 people have clicked attending and 6000 have indicated they are interested.

“Cilla Carden has a problem with her neighbours cooking meat on their BBQ, because she’s a vegan. Recently taking them to the Supreme Court,” creator of the event Bailey Mason wrote.

“Don’t let Cilla destroy a good old Aussie tradition, join us for a community BBQ, and help Cilla Carden GET SOME PORK ON HER FORK.

“BYO hotdog buns, p.s. NO VEGANS.”
