Wild birds terrorize Arizona


You might think the UK has the craziest examples of local government lacking any concept of common sense but a flock of wild chickens in Phoenix has opened the door for it’s officials to take prime position.

Five wild domestic chickens have been eating grass, scaling fences and been enjoying the view from rooftops along the junction of 29th Avenue and West Latham Street in Phoenix with authorities saying they are powerless to stop them.

According to local law they only have the power to capture dogs and cats. Their powers don’t extend to poultry.

But they say if they can establish the birds are wild they might call in a farmers group to round them up.

Until this happens will continue their vagabond life. We wish them all the best in their ‘feathered foraging’.

Get a closer look at these rebels on The Arizona Republic.
