The residents of the Hamptons area in Suffolk County, New York State, witnessed a prolonged dispute lasting several months due to a loud crowing rooster.

The story began last May in East Hampton, when Mark Orbach (53 years old) complained about the crowing of the pet rooster ‘Brownie,’ owned by his neighbor, Ephraim Majorca, loudly before dawn.

The rooster crowed continuously from around 4:45 a.m. until 8 a.m., causing severe annoyance to Orbach and his family.

Orbach told The Washington Post that the situation was ‘extremely ridiculous,’ and that he had to take sleeping pills to deal with it.

He said he lost a tenant paying $1,750 monthly due to the noise, and that his children no longer wanted to stay because they couldn’t sleep.

Orbach filed numerous complaints with town officials about the rooster’s crowing, and dozens of petitions were written with times and dates of each disturbing day, but to no avail.

According to court documents, the complaints were addressed and investigated for several months, but town officials did not take action to remove the uncontrollable crowing rooster ‘Brownie.’

The court is scheduled to hear the case in East Hampton on April 30, in an attempt to resolve the long-standing dispute that has lasted for months.
