If you’ve been to Key West, you’ve seen the chickens. They’re everywhere. Over on the Travel Bits blog, the most recent post is on those crazy critters. A sample:
Back in 2004, Key West decided to attempt to reduce the chicken population on the island by hiring a Chicken Catcher. Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned. Although he captured over 500 chickens in just a few months, the job was not without its troubles. People taunted him, the chickens proved elusive, and the Chicken Catcher didn’t feel as if they city truly supported his efforts. Less than a year into the job, the Chicken Catcher claimed his nerves were frayed, and he quit the job.
