So you think you got it bad with noisy neighbors? In South LA, the roosters, goats, chickens and pigs are taking over. According to this article in the LA Times, barnyard animals are becoming the norm south of the 10 Freeway.
While it’s not entirely legal… well, it’s not legal at all, this neighborhood, which used to be predominately African American, has now transformed into a rich composite of immigrant Latin American people, many from Mexico, where having roosters, geese and the occasional goat in the backyard is the norm. Animal Control officials say they don’t have the manpower to stop it, and don’t investigate, unless there’s a complaint. Hmm….. recession…. people gotta eat…. chicken in every pot… makes sense.
