    Talking Man Kills Neighborhood Rooster

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- A St. Petersburg rooster who used to herald the new day was silenced after a man allegedly fatally shot the bird.

    Eric Nicastro, 33, took a BB gun and went after the young auburn cοck Saturday morning, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. He later upgraded to a handgun and chased the rooster into a neighbor's yard.

    After shots were fired, a neighbor said she heard Nicastro say: "I got him!"

    Sheriff's spokesman Jim Bordner said Nicastro then threw the rooster's body into a creek.

    Witnesses called authorities. Deputies who responded to the scene saw Nicastro toting a gun. He was cited for improper exhibition of a firearm and given a warning for trespassing. The state attorney's office will decide whether to charge him.

    It's unclear who owned the rooster. A phone listing for Nicastro could not be located Sunday.

    Yeah, those roosters are very annoying.... ever since we've had Mexicans moving into our neighborhood they all seem to have a rooster. I know of 3 houses that has a rooster and its annoying.
    I've thought about calling the city since its a code violation.

    i find dogs much more annoying. roosters just yell out occasionally. dogs on the other hand, do it not only continually, but also do it as a means to 'subdue' whatever they are barking at, with their underdeveloped brain. and some just do nuisance bark. not even talking about the potential aggressiveness of each of them, in which they may attempt to attack something that they can best, but only bark and try to subdue by shouting and run away when they cant.
