LETTER: Crowing about nuisance urban roosters

I am wondering what the Mesa County noise ordinance laws are regarding nuisance animal noise?

Though there are clear laws dog owners are supposed to follow regarding nuisance dog barking, what about laws regarding nuisance rooster crowing. I live in a busy, full neighborhood, not out in the sticks, and have one neighbor whose rooster begins incessant crowing between 4:30-5 a.m. each morning, waking me and, no doubt, everyone else within earshot.

While I can understand why someone might want to harbor hens so as to collect eggs, why would anyone own a rooster within such a neighborhood, utterly disregarding everyone else’s right to sleep during early morning hours. It’s beyond my understanding. By the way, it is presently 10:19 a.m., the rooster is still crowing, and I’ve been awake since today’s crowing began at 4:30 a.m. Ugh!
