Chickens Viciously Attacked in North Pole, Alaska

“There used to be 29 white chickens living in a backyard coop in a pretty neighborhood. . . . Today, there are three chickens left, understandably traumatized by the carnage they witnessed.” Joshua Saul, “North Pole Chicken Killer,” www.alaskadispatch.com, May 25, 2010

Twenty-six chickens were found decapitated in their coop in North Pole, Alaska, a community about 15 miles southeast of Fairbanks. It appeared the birds had their heads pulled off. Their bodies were lined up outside the coop in a linear fashion and an animal predator has been ruled out. This happened in a residential, though isolated, neighborhood on Monday morning, May 24th.  You can read news accounts at www.newsminer.com and www.alaskadispatch.com.

UPC spoke today with the Fairbanks State Troopers. We assured them that many people care about these chickens and support a full investigation of this crime. They ask that if anyone has pertinent information to pass on to the troopers, to assist their investigation, please call 907-451-5100.

Thank you for any help you can give, United Poultry Concerns
