French Court Rules Rooster May Crow Where It Pleases


Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. A French court has ruled that a rooster may crow where it pleases. This all started when Corinne Fesseau built a chicken coop. Her neighbors complained a rooster disturbed their sleep. They wanted the bird moved further away. A judge said no and awarded damages to Fesseau. The rooster, whose name is Maurice, also won over members of the public. One supporter's sign read, the countryside is alive and makes noise, and so do roosters.
