It's hard to say if anyone can really own anything these days all thanks to government overreach. One couple in Oregon could be forced to destroy the small pond on their property.
Jon and Sabrina Carey purchased a 10-acre property adjacent to Butte Falls a few years ago and it came with a 2-acre pond but local government agencies say it belongs to them.
The whole debacle started when Jon applied for a medical marijuana license and was required to prove he had access to a reliable water source, but the local water master office then told them the pond was illegal. Jon and Sabrina are continuing their fight against the injustice.
The couple is willing to work with the water master and hope to get a permit that would allow the city to have access to the pond.
