Brushes with the LAW


The wanderings of a Black Orpington rooster caused the appearance in the Perth Police Court yesterday of Giuseppe Sparta (32). an Italian poultry dealer, who was charged with the theft of the bird. George Albert Chugg, the owner, said that the rooster disappeared from his place in James-street, West Perth, during Mon day night. On Tuesday morning, he heard it crowing and discovered it on defendant's property, tied up in a pen with a rope around its leg. Sparta claimed that the bird wandered into his yard early in the morning, and that he was only detaining it until the owner claimed it. 'I am not satisfied that you really meant to steal the bird.' said Mr. H. D. Moseley, P.M., to Sparta, in dismissing the charge. 'You must, however, be more careful in the future.' He ordered that the rooster should be returned to its owner.
