“Cockle-doodle-doo,” said the cockerel as it walked free this morning, 48 hours after being imprisoned due to a domestic between two machete wielding neighbours.
Remembering that one human year equals five chicken years, those 48 traumatic hours must have felt a lot longer for the cockerel. However, considering that most feathered animals in captivity are kept in small cages anyway, the cockerel might well have enjoyed his few days in the slammer. Journalists were met with an unsurprisingly blank reaction when asking the former delicious inmate if they could expect a prison diary any time soon, and equally unsurprising was the fact that animal rights groups had very little to say.
It seems the neighbours settled their differences in court, but it seems journalists couldn’t have given a flying baleada about the judge’s decision.
Now, on the outside, the cockerel returns to the every day threat of death from resident hungry possoms, snakes, iguanas, pit bulls, alsations, savage French poodles, and Pollo Norteño (a big poultry business in Honduras).
Keep your eyes peeled for more ridiculous news happening on these shores.
