A vegan waged a YouTube hate campaign against her neighbours in a bitter feud over three pet turkeys.
Noelle Obcarskas, 64, posted a series of films on the video-sharing platform, which showed her having loud arguments – some over her three birds, which she kept in the front garden of her townhouse called “Cluckingham Palace”.
Neighbours called in police after complaints about the smell and loud gobbling noises made by the turkeys and claimed Obcarskas hurled abuse at them in the village of Pulford, Cheshire.
The village has a population of 580 and is near where the Duke of Westminster has his family seat.
Obcarskas, a former accountant, also rowed about a multitude of other subjects including parking, littering and Brexit.
In one video, Obcarskas called John McKimmie, 40, a “little fat bully with a skivvy wife” as he remonstrated with her for apparently blocking his driveway with large pieces of foam.
She also posted a message on a Facebook community page about the father-of-two, saying: “Words cannot, and are inadequate to describe this display of total t---.”
In her campaign, Obcarskas targeted 73-year old Gareth Lloyd who complained about the smell of the turkeys.
She called him and Mr McKimmie, a company director, “t----”, “d---heads” and “c----”.
In another of her videos, Obcarskas filmed herself goading Mr Lloyd outside his home.
During the verbal exchange, a clearly frustrated Mr Lloyd, who was filming Ms Obcarskas on his iPad to get evidence for the police, was heard telling her: “You are one obnoxious evil woman”, adding: “You’re top of the class when it comes to stupid. If you’re on these videos, it would be X-rated… because of your looks.”
In the same film Obcarskas, who also has two “vegan dogs” and a “vegan cat”, panned her camera to a third neighbouring property as a woman screamed: “You 100 per cent hypocrite!” at her from her bedroom window.
In a different video she filmed herself arguing with the same neighbour over the parking of her Renault people carrier outside their adjoining homes.
Obcarskas – whose partner currently lives in Germany – claimed she was being targeted due to her Lithuanian heritage and in social media posts called her neighbours “lying Brexiteers with possible presenile dementia”.
She also slurred them on a Facebook group she created called: “Pulford Chester England Near Wales Cymru pronounced Kumree”.
At Chester Magistrates Court she was found guilty of harassment between March and May last year after a trial which she failed to attend.
She had earlier sent the court 20 pages of emails and claimed to have Covid, but the trial proceeded in her absence as the only evidence of her having the illness was a selfie of her with a scarf over her face, a picture of a positive test and an image of some Boots medicines.
A warrant was issued for her arrest and she now faces up to 12 weeks in jail under sentencing guidelines. Last year she was fined £180 for threatening behaviour following a similar incident in 2021.
In convicting Obcarskas, JP Mark Turner said: “We accept that evidence of both Mr John McKimmie and Mr Gareth Lloyd who were both credible in their evidence. We find that Miss Obcarskas did cause harassment, alarm and distress by posting defamatory comments on various platforms.”
