My problem rooster objected to me straightening the saddle on one of his hens and charged me. I probably would have just booted him off but he got a talon between my pantleg and boot top and it stung. So I scooped him up to explain to him how close he was to being lunch meat. For him only hanging him upside down while holding his legs gets through his bony skull. He was still flapping and fighting me when I look ed up to see the local Animal rights freak, card carrying P.E.T.A. member, die hard vegan staring at me open mouthed from her car. I finished my talk with the roo and carried him off. I didn't look back but I know she sat in her car blocking the road for several more minutes before she left. Probably trying to call the "authorities" on me as an animal torturer. This gal has never spoken a civil word to me, but she's shouted at me telling me what a horrible person I am. I "imprison" animals and take their lives. yes, I keep my dogs in a finced yard, acres of yard. And, horror of horrors, I eat chickens!!!! No doubt I will have more pamphlets on animal cruelty stuffed in my mailbox tomorrow.
