A Belgian farmer accidentally laid claim to French territory when he moved a border marker that was in an inconvenient spot for his tractor.
A local history buff noticed the stone was out of place by about 7.5 feet, according to the BBC.
“We know exactly where the stone was before, right next to a tree,” Erquelinnes, Belgium, Mayor David Lavaux told CNN Tuesday. “In 2019, during the 200th anniversary, they were geo-localized very precisely.”
Lavaux added: “The stones were placed there in 1819 following the defeat of Napoleon, and the year is inscribed on them.”
“I was happy, my town was bigger,” he told the BBC, laughing. “But the mayor of Bousignies-sur-Roc didn’t agree.”
The farmer will be asked to return the stone to its original location, and Lavaux noted that the person could face criminal charges if he chooses not to comply.Washington Examiner
