Rooster roams downtown Columbia

This rooster has been a feature of Peace Park for several months. Some people have named him and provide him with food and water.

A lone rooster has been an unusual sight for the past few days among the sidewalks, streets and green spaces around the Missouri School of Journalism and Peace Park. Here he is paused outside Lee Hills Hall at Eighth and Elm streets, but he's been spotted along Hitt Street as well. His appearance has brought up memories of the Mexico goat, who wandered the streets of Mexico, Mo., until he was lassoed and auctioned off for charity. A person answering the phone at Columbia Animal Control said efforts have been made to catch him, so far unsuccessful.
