Maurice the rooster was put on a trial in France on July 4 but the dispute has been going on for over 2 years. Much to the owner’s dismay, it has become a bigger issue as the chicken going on trial has split the people coming from rural and urban communities.
In the court battle, the feathered animal is the defendant as the debate about his case is mainly about the “noise disturbance” he causes when it’s early in the morning and he is crowing loudly.
An old and retired couple aged 65 and 70 filed the legal case for “abnormal noise disturbance” where he was described in court as quiet pensioners. They mainly complained about how Maurice the rooster created abnormally high levels of noise disturbing the peace of their home on the island as he crowed each morning at 6:30 am, according to The Guardian.
