DUFUR, Ore. (AP) - The Dufur (DOO’-fur) rooster has won a reprieve.

The mayor, who also is the complaint compliance officer in the Columbia River Gorge farming town, told the family of 5-year-old Ayla Macnab this week she can keep her pet rooster, named Dallas.

The Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/P6aNba ) the bird does not run afoul of the law, for now.

Mayor Arthur Smith says the city council will hold a public hearing on the noise abatement issue to see who squawks.

Ayla started raising Dallas as a 4-H project. But a neighbor complained, and the mayor said the bird had to go.

The Macnab family organized a campaign to save Dallas that has won thousands of online supporters around the world.
