The right of the public over a highway is limited to its use for the purpose of passing and repassing on it, so that a trespass may be committed if the highway is used for the purpose of interfering with sporting rights1. Consequently the owner of land adjoining the highway who is also owner of the soil of the highway may employ all the means at his disposal for resisting a trespass there that he might use in the case of any land in his occupation2.
