According to Bryan Tucker, from Sandston in Virginia, living in close proximity to a bus stop meant he often had children going into his garden, leaving litter behind and damaging his property. So Bryan decided to take matters into his own hands and install the fence.
Speaking to NBC last September, he said: "We've been warning people for years.
"We called transportation and they refused to do anything about it. They said it was my responsibility if the kids get hurt on my land and that I need to tell them to get off my land and stay in the street.
"I'm not in charge of other people's children."
He told WTVR that he had to pick up and get rid of rubbish left behind on a daily basis, so came up with the idea of installing the electric fence.
However, not everyone is a fan of Bryan's new fence, with several neighbours speaking out to say that it could be dangerous and the local authority telling him he needs to remove it.
