Local organic farm scene of marauding dog attack… Dogs running free after owner reportedly in jail | The Quad-Cities Daily

It’s not easy doing what they do. They work hard for their money. And this morning, because the owner of 2 Chow-breed dogs didn’t have the animals secured, it just wasn’t the Carpenters day.

In the twilight of the morn­ing, these dogs made their way into the chick­en pen and had a field day with the helpless birds. These were the Car­pent­ers laying-hens. A speci­al breed of Rhode Is­land Reds, they were all im­por­ted into Al­abama. And they were all killed by these dogs, save a couple of them who made it to safety. It will effectively end the production of free-range eggs for this year. And the birds aren’t cheap.

The owner of these Chows was not available for comment. Turns out he’s in jail. He has been in jail for a few weeks, according to a confidential source. The dogs, which are having to fend for themselves, must be pretty hungry.

We asked Colbert County Animal Control Director, Julie Nichols if this is an isolated case of stray dogs causing mayhem. She gave the obvious answer, “Happens all the time. Just not quite like this.”
