In Key West, Florida, city commissioners boted to remove the roaming street chickens. There are up to 3000 wild chickens in the city and have mostly been left alone to attract tourists. Recent concerns of bird disease initiated a crack down (or cluck down). However, a previous 2004 attempt that rounded up 500 chickens failed as some chicken-sympathizers opened the cages and let them loose.
