This is a pretty wild one, a farmer is taking matters into his own hand.

Good for him defending his farm, what are the odds of him winning his war with developers?

A Chinese farmer has declared war on property developers who want his land, building a cannon out of a wheelbarrow and pipes and firing rockets at would-be eviction teams, state media said on Tuesday.


Yang Youde, who lives on the outskirts of bustling Wuhan city, in central Hubei province, says he has fended off two eviction attempts with his improvised weapon, which uses ammunition made from locally sold fireworks.

"I shot only over their heads to frighten them," the China Daily quoted him saying of his attacks on demolition workers sent to move him off his land. "I didn't want to cause any injuries."

The farmers in Indiana just grow weed and red afros. Hidden in their fields and on their heads; respectively.

Seriously, good on farmer Yang! Rockets?
We don't see that over here, maybe farm equipment parked across roads and bickering and boundary lines with officials - home made rockets is just way cooler.
