Chicken in the garage

Postby Eugene » Tue Mar 15, 2016 6:27 pm

Chicken has been in daughter's garage for a few days. Daughter called all the neighbors, no one is missing a chicken. Son in-law thought was funny until he found out that the chicken was eating his grass seed.

Yesterday daughter called 911, sheriff's dept. and reported the chicken. Sheriff dept. said they would send someone up and catch the chicken. 24 hours later, the sheriff's dept. has not arrived for the emergency chicken eradication.

Told daughter to catch the chicken and have it for dinner. Daughter didn't want to kill and clean the chicken. Told daughter to call son in-law's best friend, who is not squeamish, and have him take care of the chicken.

Stay tuned. The saga continues. Will the chicken escape or wind up in tomorrows dinner?

Thinking if son in-law's best friend shows up and borrows daughter's pellet gun, it's tomorrows dinner.

Edit: There is still a possibility that the heavily armed sheriff's swat team with swat vehicles arrive and and try to take the fugitive chicken into custody without bloodshed.

If I was the law and you called me through 911 to come get a chicken I would not come either. 911 is for emergency, not because you have a chicken problem.

Every place I've lived since 911 existed either had the police handle animal problems (reached by 911) or had an animal control officer that handled animals. The animal control officer might not have been part of the police department, but was dispatched by the police through 911.

The chicken at large is taking place in rural west central Iowa. Under Iowa code (law) animal control is a law enforcement function. Larger cities usually have an animal control officer as part of the police department. Rural counties most likely do not have a designated animal control officer due to a lack of resources and or necessity.

Last I heard daughter was still waiting for the police to arrive. Daughter said that she would wait for a few more days on the police.

I have suggested a couple of times, pellet gun, end of problem. Daughter lives on the edge of town where a small poof from a pellet gun would not attract any attention. Although it might be against a city ordinance against shooting a fire arm within city limits.

I wish I lived closer. I'd come get the chicken if it's a hen. For that matter I bet there's an animal rescue somewhere close by that would come get it.

Sheriff's dept personnel picked up the chicken last Friday. Told my daughter that they were going to give it to a good home.

Closest animal rescue league/operation is about 50 miles distance, one way.

Guessing, the chicken was a hen that escaped from Rose Acres, about 1/2 to 3/4 mile distance as the chicken walks. Rose Acres is a huge egg production facility.

Maybe it shouldn't have, but that made me chuckle.

That was a chicken of extraordinary value. It was hormone-free, free range, raised without the use of antibiotics, steroids or cages. Humanely and ethically captured by law enforcement. And any additional buzz words to make shoppers think that a whole chicken, with giblets, is worth $10- a pound.

If butchered the chicken wasn't processed in a USDA-inspected facility.

A neighbor raises turkeys. Turkeys are off antibiotics 5 days before selling and a number/percentage of the flock being sold is sent to a lab for testing.

Another neighbor butchers and processes poultry. It's a small operation. Every day/time the neighbor butchers and processes poultry there is a state inspector present.

For those of you that have Facebook, check out Mike Henglesburg's post about chicken regs in his township.
