    That is absolutely disgusting. I hope they catch them and throw away the key. What is the world coming to? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Seriously, what is wrong with people? Makes me want to live somewhere there aren't any.

    I would be worried that who ever did this might come back to the neighborhood. Sounds like a serial killer in the making. Those poor kids and chickens. [​IMG]

    There is already a thread on this in Random Ramblings. And while everyone feels bad for the kid, virtually everyone suspects that is was an animal predator, NOT a human. I wholeheartedly agree--the description is very much what one would find if the predator was a weasel or similar.

    With my old pen I had a trampling incident- the live chickens trampled the dead ones in panic- all of them were trampled but one...

    I really -could- go on but won't it was two raccoons and one was scaring them to were the pin was weak- the other was reaching through and grabbing, the -hole- was at head height so once the chicken was dead the darn varmints couldn't reach any more of the bird.

    It was one hole ONE hole one 1inch * 1 inch hole rat it all.

    It wasn't till later that I realized (during funeral) one wasn't trampled.

    Also dead chicken bodies once stiff have a different shape too-


    Edit week/weak - whatever. *shrug*
