Last week our rooster attacked my wife. He is an Oriental Game and had never show any signs of aggression. She opened the run so he could get out for a while and when she turned her back he hit from behind, spurring her multiple times. She ran to get away from him and fell down. The rooster got on top of her and resumed the attack. I was on the phone with her at the time. I could hear her screaming. She dropped the phone, but I could still hear everything. I could hear her calling for Bay, our Lab/Chow mix to "get him", then...silence. I was 30 miles away, and felt so helpless. After an eternity (probably 5 minutes), she came back on the phone. She had gone inside the house when the dog ran off the rooster, and came back out with a broom to retrieve the phone. Meanwhile I made a call and by the time we got back from the emergency clinic that night, the rooster was gone.
