Hollywood Silver Fox Farm Ltd v Emmett, [1936] 2 KB 408 (CA)


E dislikes having a commercial silver fox farm nearby. E said he would shoot a gun off during breeding season if H kept breeding foxes, to disrupt breeding.


Does this constitute nuisance?


Malice can be considered in determining whether an action constitutes nuisance.


Follows Christie v Davey (1893), to say that it is a nuisance.

E's actions were driven by malice and/or spite. E was doing so deliberately for a malicious purpose.


H awarded 250 pounds, and an injunction limited to breeding season.
