rooster

rooster

i had a rooster visit my classroom last week. he was in the process of being transported to a rooster rescue. often times, roosters are killed because most farms can have multiple ladies, but only one boy. so, the males are used as dinner. this particular little man is a old english game bird. they are raised to be shot, which i call “canned hunting”. sorta like releasing a fox to do a fox hunt with hounds. not very sportsman-like.

    • Yeah. me too. Canned hunting is terrible. Near where I lived there was a “game farm” who was conducting illegal canned hunts of wild african animals it was disgusting. Luckily the guy got caught and the feds shut the place down.
