"Zheng's attorney Aileen Tucker tells us in a phone interview that her client just wants to be left alone to raise his pigeons in peace. It's his hobby and he's looking to move forward with his appeal to the county to have the property rezoned."

Lots of luck with that after he messed with the "wetlands".

Rezoning is not an option.

There is a house for sale in powhatan for only 152K, tons of land, only a couple neighbors far away. He could always bring his pigeons there. We wouldn't mind.

Something that all of you don't realise is that when it comes to Orientals and the laws in this country, is that they do everything to evade following the law. You should see what they try to get away with in California all the time. If they get caught, then they play the race card and get local authorities to knuckle under to their whims. Trust me this is how they operate and I bet that this clown with his dirty birdies is going to do the same. The write their own laws to suit themselves...classic Oriental mentality.

-OR- caring for his birds and growing his gardens could bring him a lot of happiness and he doesn't want to give it up. I understand having a hobby and I understand attachment to animals, but you still have to follow the local laws and rules set in place. If the law doesn't suit him where he currently lives, all he has to do is relocate to a place that will allow him to enjoy his birds and hobby. With a couple acres of land in Powhatan, he could certainly do that. Even Amelia. The commute wouldn't be a huge adjustment because it's so close to Chesterfield anyway.

So long as his birds are being treated ethically and their living conditions are in line with the EPA, I don't see why he should have to give it up. Like I said, simply relocate to a place that's sustainable for that kind of hobby where both his and neighbors' needs for privacy and respect are met.

Ok Dr Doolittle. Nobody except you (and your clone) would even think of telling the animals.

Maybe this guy will rent you one of his cages to live in.

Yup, a matched set of idiots.
