Dairy down. Eggs to go.

Remember Lona Lane, the city councilman whose failed attempt to ban pet chickens within the city limits, was followed by a successful ban on ice cream trucks in the 18th Ward?

Well, she's planning to use the council's new prohibition on noisy hounds in a grudge match against the birds:

"Although barking dogs are clearly the target, the ordinance refers to “any dog or other animal” that makes excessive noise.

Ald. Lona Lane (18th) said last week she intends to use it against the hens and roosters who make a racket in her South Side ward."
