What a Cock-A-Doodle-Doo

A noisy rooster called Maurice is taken to court!

A rooster named Maurice has been put on trial in western France after his early-morning crowing got under the skin of his neighbours.

The copper-feathered cockerel is the defendant in a court battle where he is accused of causing noise pollution by a retired couple.

The case was heard by the court in Rochefort, Charente-Maritime on Thursday.

A verdict is not expected until September 5.
