What ever happened to common sense? Regulatory powers and the thinking of martinets combine to make mountains out of molehills. Why not just apply the common sense rules that already apply to animals in an urban environment? Sanitation and flock size regulations make sense, but outlawing a generally beneficial animal does not.
It is concerning that government is interfering with peoples avenues for providing food for themselves and their communities (in this way- I appreciate sanitation oversight, etc). Hiccups along the way to surviving a change from an economy dominated by big farms and bigger brothers to one that is more independent and innovative. Just hoping the hiccups don’t somehow choke us..
