Can you believe it? Miami Beach officials are in a feather ruffling uproar over one little rooster. Mr. Clucky, one of the area's better-known citizens was named animal activist of the year in 2008 and has appeared in parades and on magazine covers. He's even acted as a mascot for animal welfare organizations, particularly those dealing with the plight of farm animals.
Despite his popularity with residents and tourists, Mr. Clucky was recently served an eviction notice. It seems that someone in Miami Beach doesn't like hearing a rooster crow in the morning.
C'mon, people, please! With all the problems Miami Beach has you're going to worry about a rooster that crows? Who's next? A dolphin that chatters too loud?
Mr. Clucky is drumming up support for an appeal to the city. If you'd like to see his plan, check out the Mr. Clucky website.
Good luck, Mr. Clucky! May you become the one who beats City Hall.
