A man has been charged with breaching a court order designed to keep his cockerel quiet.
Charlie should be housed in a lightproof shed overnight
In November, Ozzie Williamson, of Selkirk in the Borders, was given four weeks to put up a lightproof shed.
Charlie the cockerel and other birds had been placed on a night-time curfew after neighbours raised a court action, claiming they could not sleep.
Police have now taken action after the smallholder allegedly failed to build the new dark house.
A report has been sent to the procurator fiscal.
The deal to build the shed had been agreed at Scottish Borders District Court when it met to discuss the four-year-old cockerel.
It set out specified hours in which Charlie would have to be kept in lightproof accommodation.
