Rooster crows too early – owner to blame?

cock crowingDo you get woken-up early in the morning by a cock crowing in your neighbor’s house? If that is the case, you might also be able to impose a fine to the owner, as it was done in Italy.

Funny laws and funny complaints! A rooster crowing at the break of dawn has earned his owner a 200 euro ($295) fine in an Italian court after neighbors complained it was waking them up too early.

It is another story though the rooster’s owner in Bolzano province would appeal the sentence, supported by the local Farmers’ Association, on the grounds that he needs at least one rooster to breed chickens. (Reuters)
