can a cable company put cables in your yard?

my dad is putting up some fencing in our yard, and while the holes for the fence poles where being dug we accidentally cut a cable.

the next day Comcast comes to us saying we just cut the cable that connected our neighborhood. so they took out one of our fence poles to reconnect the cable and said the were gonna send us a bill

CAN THEY DO THAT????

its my yard and i want to put up some fences. besides i had no idea that cables would be berried in my yard by some company.

wouldn’t this be like me berrying a satellite dish in the yard then sell that house and charging the new home owner for disrupting my dish???
