Dog catchers? Check.

Truant officers? Check.

Chicken catchers? WTC?!

Until recently, Miami employed a full-time “chief of chicken round up” because the city was overrun with loose chickens. Consider this another costly and unintended consequence of backyard farming. It’s bad for the birds, communities, the environment, and potentially public health.

Check out the photo in this article to see how just how secure some backyard operations look, fencing and all.

And while Miami expects to save $20,000 by eliminating the bird-busting post, it certainly doesn’t imply that the chickens will stop running amok any time soon.

Let’s leave it to the farmers…not the urban and suburban hobbyists.
