No fine for chicken-keeping jeweler
An Italian court has thrown out animal cruelty charges brought against a jeweler who displayed a hen and chicks in the window of his shop.
The judge threw out a fine levied last year against the Rovereto jeweler, saying the birds were given enough room to move in the
Golden Eggs window display and were not subject to worse conditions than chickens raised at commercial farms, ANSA reported Wednesday.
