Our Jurassic Chickens Are Bigger Than Yours

People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. – George Orwell

I confess, I’ve been a little upset ever since I saw the picture of the sheep comforting the sheepdog that had been injured by a wolf threatening his flock. I felt a little better after seeing the collars the dogs wear for protection against wolf attacks but it was still unsettling, thinking about the price our protectors pay.

And I thought, what if we all joined with the sheepdog in fighting our foe? Wouldn’t the wolf be completely vanquished? I didn’t have to wait long for an answer to my question - which was  “yes” - from, of all places,  France!

A fox was killed by a group of killer chickens that ganged up on the intruder in northeast France after it sneaked into the henhouse:

A fox in a henhouse got way more than it bargained for when a group of killer chickens turned the tables on their traditional foe and pecked it to death.

The henhouse was located at an agricultural school in France and the fox likely entered the coop at dusk last week and got trapped inside as hatch doors close when the sun goes down.

If French chickens can pull this off, think how awesome we would be if we ever decided to gang up and kick the butt of our cultural enemies.

Because I promise you: our Jurassic chickens are bigger than yours.
