ERLANGER, Ky. (AP) - There are plenty of ruffled feathers in a
northern Kentucky neighborhood after animal control officers took
away a rooster.
The colorful bird had made his home on a quiet cul-de-sac where
the residents named him Cocky-Doodle-Do.
The Kentucky Enquirer reported 85 of Cocky's friends and
admirers signed a petition protesting Kenton County Animal Control
capturing the free range rooster. He was put in exile on a farm for
a while, but a resident brought him back home this week.
Among those crying "foul" at a City Council meeting Tuesday
was Cheryl Mather, who donned a chicken suit in support of the
The council formed a "chicken committee" to see if any
ordinances regulating fowl need changing.
Cocky was picked up after someone complained on April 14 that he
pecked at some children.
