Found In LA Times

by

comment

An unknown broke into Fresno Foster Farms

killed and mutilated 920 chickens

with nothing

but a golf club

It wasn't much of a contest

Him and those chickens

bound for slaughter

"Must have been

pretty sick"

deputy sheriff Curtice pointed

out

"It would take a long time to do it"

Fresno Foster Farms released a statement

"the chickens were going to be killed anyway"

But they do stuff like that humanely

of course

as if killing 920 chickens at once

was a barn door closing itself

on a windy night
