A man in the 4700 block of South 60th Street might know.
That man had to be reminded of the city ordinance prohibiting chickens when four of his feathered friends escaped his home and were running loose through the parking lot of Subway at the corner of 60th Street and Layton Avenue at 4:30 a.m. Sept. 10, according to Greenfield police.
The man told police he did not want to go out and chase down his chickens so early in the morning, so with the help of Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control, officers corralled them for him.
