File this under nutty.
A 78-year-old woman in Great Britain found guilty of tearing up her neighbor's flowers may have done it because she believed her neighbor had trained a squirrel to destroy her garden, the Birmingham Mail reported.
Marion Webster was ordered to "keep the peace" for six months following her conviction last week.
Dubbed the "neighbor from hell," Webster put up a big metal gate and extended the height of her fences after becoming convinced that a jealous neighbor had trained a squirrel to ruin her flower garden, which neighbors told The Daily Mail she was "very proud of."
People said they thought it was a joke until Webster tore up one of her neighbors' gardens in "retaliation."
According to the Birmingham Mail, this isn't an isolated incident.
Police had been contacted about Webster more than 40 times since 2002 for everything from noise complaints to yelling and swearing at passersby.
