Shocking stories of animals in trouble with the law
Did you know animals could be arrested?
A rooster named Maurice has been put on trial in France, as the defendant in a court battle over a long-running neighborhood dispute.
The trial has stirred up enormous debate in the country, especially as roosters are one of France's national symbols. His owner has started a petition which has garnered over 120,000 signatures, and several people even came to the court with other roosters in a show of support.
As surprising as it may seem, there have been many cases over the centuries of animals that have been in trouble with the law, with many being arrested for crimes including theft, assault and battery, and espionage.
Check out this gallery to find out what kind of trouble Maurice is in, and learn more about some of the most bizarre and shocking stories of animals that have committed punishable crimes!
