    Bristol, Conn., drops planned rooster ban

    Bristol officials dropped a proposal Wednesday to ban roosters in residential areas.

    The Bristol Press reported that the proposal would have banned anyone but farmers from getting new roosters, though they would be allowed to keep roosters they already had.

    Officials said that because roosters look alike, figuring out which rooster has been around a while and which one is new would be practically impossible.
