Drunken German joyrider totals 300 chickens

Poultry pandemonium

A 17-year-old German joyrider faces a legal plucking after provoking the death of 300 chickens by crashing a van into their Kassel abode, Reuters reports.

The unnamed perp apparently took the vehicle from a fairground where he was staying and piled it into the nearby chicken shed containing 1,000 birds. A police spokesman explained: "Apparently some of the chickens were so desperate to get away that they ran into the wall and died. Others suffered heart attacks."

The youth was later arrested back at the fairground, presumably on TDA and poultrycide raps. ®
