France: The Gallic cock forbidden to sing!



In June 2009, Mr. Bernard Uthurry, Socialist mayor of Oloron-Sainte-Marie, French commune of 10,947 inhabitants, mostly agricultural of Pyrénées-Atlantiques Aquitaine took a by-law to silence the roosters.

        
Their crowing now "constitutes a manifestly illegal nuisance. In town, I think it is legitimate to be angry when one is awakened every morning, very early, by the crowing of a cock. If no solution n is found, the police, and soon the security agents of the highway, will enforce the order, "he said.

        
The by-law provides for a third-class ticket for an amount of 68 Euros or 180 Euros if the owners of the roosters do not pay within 45 days.
        
And the opposition said with  ironically: "When the ban on cats meow?".
        
When you consider that the Gallic rooster is the national emblem of France since 1665 and is often stopped singing!
