These Things Don’t Only Happen in Florida

Some people have a dog, or a cat. Others have more exotic pets. But you don't often come across anyone that keeps chickens (unless they plan to eat the suckers at some point). Lauren Steltzer, of Lower Merion, Pennsylvania, not only keeps chickens as pets, but when two of the chickens went missing recently, she put up posters around the neighborhood and updated her Facebook page. Unfortunately, the police in Lower Merion didn't get the message and when a police officer responded to a call for a chicken at large, he did what anyone else would do when confronted with such a ferocious beast... he got a friend to shoot it (with a bow and arrow!). At least the police department admits that they could have shown better judgement. Read the original article here.

Ok then Nethie... the cop obviously knew there was a distinct "pecker" threat .. so he got someone to "cock" and load.

Polo said police had received a call between noon and 1 p.m. March 29 that there was a "large, orange chicken running at large," but did not know that the animal was an escapee.

yeah, because obviously, with so many wild chickens running free to reek havoc on people and domestic animals, how could the officer ever figure out that it was tamed chicken that belonged to someone? chickens are just so dangerous and viscious in the wild. :roll:
or in other words...the cop was too chicken to deal with the fowl creature. he was just cock-sure it didn't belong somewhere that he egged his friend on to shoot it.

Long story short:

My great-grandmother had a pet rooster.
When the rooster was young the meter reader kicked it.
A few months later the same meter reader came back.
He hopped the fence to get into the back yard.
The rooster kicked him back.
Opened the ashhole's leg from ankle to knee for 60+ stitches.
The dude tried to sue but gave it up when it came out that he had started the fight and lost to a "chicken".
