What I don't understand is on property how can some people have man made lake and not have it fenced, ok if you live out in the sticks and your closest neighbor is 30kms away..
But what about suburbs where houses on property can be quite close together?
This is how my husbands niece died.
She was only 3 and she was helping her dad wash the car, he noticed she was gone and after hours of the parents searching they found she had drowned in the neighbors man made lake.
I won't go into detail on how the houses were set up but it would have taken her about 3-5 minutes to reach the lake.
Her mother was a swimming instructor and the little girl did know how to swim, it was just a horrible thing to happen.
So why don't they need to be fenced?
I understand they are for live stock to drink from but why should 30cm depth be fenced but a huge body of water be left open..
