Cock-a-doodle SHHHHHH!

Bit of a bizarre one.

Maurice is a cockerel who lives in France with his owner Corinne. 

Each morning he was crow, as per the norm however...

He sparked a noise pollution complaint from a retired couple who own a holiday home nearby after they moaned about the early morning chorus from the bird.

Anyway, French courts have ruled in favour of Maurice's owner.

Corinne, who has lived in the same place for 35 years would've had to move or somehow silence the cockerel (How? Who knows?) but instead, the judge was in her favour and the case has been closed.

A news source has been quoted to say "news of the legal troubles FLEW across the world, gaining Maurice a FLOCK of supporters"

She has been quoted too by saying she was "Cock-a-hoop at the news of the ruling"...

I'm no expert but I know you can tell a human to politely quieten down, but no way can you tell a cockerel to shhh surely?
