Here They Come To Snuff The Rooster

A Jacksonville, Florida man has been arrested after allegedly murdering his neighbor’s rooster. Wow, that’s a sentence I never thought I would write.

A Jacksonville man has been accused of murdering his neighbor’s rooster. Now, a feud between the two has ended in a 30-hour jail stay and a lot of fighting. James Nix says it happened mid-May of this year.

“I didn’t know to give it a 21-gun salute!” Nix said, “CPR, mouth-to-mouth, do you know? Or call the chicken ambulance?”

That may be the most hilarious quote I have ever heard.

Jason Defelice believes his neighbor killed the pet rooster on purpose, saying, “I lose them to animals, but I was not expecting to lose them to my neighbor that was like my friend.”

The good news is Nix has an airtight alibi that no jury can possibly question…

Nix says it only happened because the rooster was attacking him.

“I’m defending myself, you know. I was fearing for my safety, and the chicken died.”

Wait a minute, a grown man was fearing for his safety from a ten-inch tall rooster? Is Nix confined to a wheelchair? Can he not outrun a rooster? Can he not stand up to protect his face from the rooster’s beak? What the hell is going on in Jacksonville?

  1. Roosters are way meaner than most people think. Get sideways of one and he can do some damage. My DIL had a rooster that went after one of my grandkids and that rooster met the same fate. Great story though!

  2. Grew up with roosters that would chase us kids, jump up on your back and spur you. My sister was terrified of them. Those of us a bit bigger could outsprint them and then turn on them and chase them back.

    The other elephant in the room is that rosters can be obnoxiously noisy. Neighbors? Maybe someone was tired of being woken up at 5am by the crowing? Or tired of hearing it all day long.
