Dog's attack reported to devastate poultry pen

June 29, 2008


WALES, Maine—Members of a central Maine farming family say a dog got into their poultry pen in Wales and devastated scores of animals being raised for food.



Amy Tremblay said her sons caught the dog and hooked it to a run, but that by then the husky had wiped out the family's young flocks of about 105 Rhode Island Red and Cornish Rock chickens.



Tremblay said the dog didn't eat any of the fowl, but mangled them.



Animal Control Officer Wendell Strout said after the Saturday attack that the husky, which was young and had a shock collar and a tag, was not dangerous to humans. Strout said the dog probably got excited after scaling the pen fence.



Strout estimated the damage at around $1,000.

There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.
