Man Killed by Chicken in Vicious Attack

Roosters can be vicious. I grew up around them and my dad actually bred fighting roosters. This was a long time ago back when it was still legal in some places. Beyond that, I also used to work for another guy where I would take care of his fighting roosters and they would try and attack me any time I would try to feed and water them.

One man, Jasper Kraus of Killahornia, Creagh, Ballinasloe in Roscommon, Ireland was attacked by a Brahma chicken and died from the injuries he sustained. According to The Irish Examiner, during the hearing it was said that the attack was so severe that it caused massive bleeding.

Kraus had survived cancer and was living with a heart condition at the time of his death. He had been tending to his chickens when one of them became aggressive and attacked him. The chicken punctured his left leg which resulted in fatal bleeding. Many of you may not be aware that roosters have spurs on their feet that are very sharp.

The attack also reportedly injured Kraus’s granddaughter who was present at the time. She suffered minor injuries but is expected to make a full recovery.

This incident has raised questions about how safe it is to keep chickens as pets or on farms. While most chickens are docile and friendly animals, some can become aggressive if they feel threatened or if their territory is invaded. It’s important for owners to be aware of this potential danger and take steps to protect themselves and their families from harm.

It’s also important for owners to take precautions when handling chickens such as wearing gloves or long sleeves and pants when interacting with them. It’s also recommended that people avoid getting too close to a chicken’s face or beak as this can cause them to become defensive and lash out with their claws or beak.
