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.

The fine had been imposed by authorities after an animal rights
activist complained the hen and chicks were not given adequate
space and were subject to constant stress from window-tapping and
bright lighting.
