This past Monday night, the rooster was found with a "life threatening" gun shot would to the stomach.

Richard's "excuse" for shooting the rooster, well I always used a BB gun to scare off the chickens...But he was fully aware that the .22 would do more damage, but used it anyway.

So the "Richard" was taken into custody so "cocking" his weapon, and shooting his neighbor's "rooster." How bizarre and fun is this story?

Dick faces felony and misdemeanor charges for the cock shooting.

So lesson to learn with this one. If your neighbor's rooster is bothering you, and getting too close to your property line...You def don't want the neighbors rooster where it doesn't belong. Maybe knock on the neighbors door and talk about it.  Maybe talk rooster for a while, and get over it.
