Human Vermin

Recommended Posts

Vandals broke into our allotment last night, ripping open the chicken shed door, damaging the electric fencing unit so that it wasn't working.

 

Luckily, they didn't take any of the chooks.

 

However, the RUDEWORDERS left the chooks wandering about, and my oldest home-hatched girl, Norman, was taken by a non-human predatorr from outside our allotment area boundary (outside the electric fence) . The pile of feathers indicates it wasn't human.

 

We're assuming that the creature that took poor Normy was used to the electric fence being on, so didn't actually attempt to enter the allotment. If it had, we'd have lost all of them.

 

I'm so angry at the mindless little RUDEWORDs that did this. They turned over lots of sheds, no one seems to have had anything taken. And my lovely little Normy has gone.

 

I am, of couse, concerned that they will be back - equipped to transport.

I need to check. I've been out all morning, so DH and the chap we share the allotment with, have been dealing with it all.

 

Of they haven't reported it, I will be doing so.

Thanks Cat tails. They won't find them...or even if they do, nothing will happen.

 

I can feel my blood starting to boil again.

WitchHazel I'm so sorry this has happened to you. And poor Norman. I just don't know what's wrong with some people. Things like this make me sick. Why can't people just leave things along that don't belong to them? If it was me I'd .. Actually I'd better not say.

Thanks everyone.

 

I do appreciate that we've been really lucky, considering what could have happened.

 

It's just.... Norman.

 

She hatched under her mum 2 weeks after some other chooks hatched in our incubator. Her mum rejected her, and we thought she would die. We put her in with the other babies, and they were all enormous in comparison. She had no idea that she was tiny and young, she tried to do everything they did.

 

We were convinced she was a boy (she kept taking up a cockerel stance), right up to the day she laid an egg.

I was looking at pictures of her on your blog. Do you have some of her eggs now?

 

Sadly all her eggs are clear. Either Henry wasn't covering her or she's just a bit too old to have viable eggs.

I am soooo sorry to hear that Hazel, I hope that the police manage to find the perps, and they get their karma back sevenfold.

 

I shall send a hex out on them tonight, and rev up the chainsaw :wink: they should beware the wrath of Omleteers; never summon up anything you can't banish... we have powerful magic :D

 

Personally, I'd be tempted to lay in wait for their return and set the hounds on them.

That's the lines I was thinking along...

So sorry to read this, poor Norman.

 

I hope that the saying "what goes around comes around" is true in this case and the nasty little beings that did this get what's coming to them - words just fail me sometimes. :|

 

Sleep tight little Norman x

Sorry to hear this. There are some horrible people about. They are obviously so jealous of others that they have to mindlessly spoil things.

So sorry, that is just awful.

 

I can not understand the mentality of people to destroy other peoples property and when it involves animals as well. Just madness.

 

So sorry that it has happened to you WitchHazel.
