Rich's Crazy News Story Of The Day:
The manager of a Tennessee fried chicken restaurant said a rooster first spotted in the area three months ago has been making daily visits to the eatery. The manager of Gus's Fried Chicken in Collierville said the rooster crosses the street nearly every day to pose next to the rooster on the restaurant's sign. Neighbors said they are unaware of anyone in the area keeping fowl. Animal Services said workers have been trying to catch the rooster for months so it can be moved to a new home and protected from raccoons and other predators. So far the rooster is too fast for the animal control people.

The latest news from the Hancock News Service - odd news fair and balanced!

A Greer, South Carolina man ordered by his city to get rid of his goat says he is willing to risk jail time for his pet. Charles Ferguson said he was ordered by animal control officers to remove his goat, Yogi, from the city by Friday and he could face criminal prosecution if he refuses. Ferguson said he has been raising Yogi since the animal was born and he will not abide by the order. He said: "Would the city of Greer ask you to get rid of one of your kids? No! That's like asking me to get rid of one of my kids. This is my kid. It's not gonna happen."
