Cows have been literally going out of bounds lately in West Bali as they graze over a five hectare archaeological site in Gilimanuk, Jembrana.

But we can’t blame it all on the cows. The Jembrana Head of Culture, Education, Youth, Sports, Culture, and Tourism says the owners intentionally allow their cattle to enter the site through areas where the surrounding fence is broken, despite a customary law prohibiting them from doing so. Sneaky, sneaky.

“We’ve often coordinated with the village in order to prohibit its citizens from grazing their cattle here, but there are still cattle trespassing into the site,” Anak Agung Ngurah Mahadikara told Merdeka on Wednesday.
