More Cockfighting in St Paul

I got blasted the last time I brought this up.

A neighbor reported about 20 people carrying chickens into a home on St. Paul’s East Side. When officers went to the home, they were told nobody was fighting chickens inside. But officers heard roosters crowing.

It’s not that I have no sensitivity for animal cruelty. It’s just that the wording of these stories cracks me up.

    This story is missing a paragraph!
    "Authorities were tipped off by a call from inside the compound by a chicken who identified herself as a 16-year-old chick who was nearly ready to lay an egg after being abused by her brood’s middle-aged rooster."

    I heard this story on the radio this morning too and couldn’t help but be amused at the line "When officers went to the home, they were told nobody was fighting chickens inside. But officers heard roosters crowing."

    "No officers, it’s an indoor chicken farm. We saw that movie Chicken Run and wanted to mitigate the risk of chicken escape."

    ‘No sir, no chickens here!’

    God, I can totally picture it…
