SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – Animal lovers are squawking over what they say is the dark side of the locavore movement.
The idea of living life like a locavore is to limit food and drink to locally produced goods. For many, being a locavore means raising chickens in their backyards. Unfortunately, some locavores have a change of heart, and are abandoning the fowl, much to the dismay of San Francisco’s Animal Care and Control.
“People either move or find out that maybe it’s a lot of work or messier than they expected or things like that,” said Animal Care and Control director Rebecca Katz.
