Intruder uses golf club to kill nearly 1,000 Foster Farms chickens
At least one person broke into a Foster Farms chicken shed in Fresno County this month and used a golf club to kill 920 birds, officials said Tuesday.
Deputies arrived at the facility in Caruthers, southwest of Fresno, on Sept. 20 and found that an intruder had pulled back a fence to gain access to the shed, the sheriff’s office said in a news release. It said the intruder killed hundreds of chickens with a golf club “and possibly another similar type instrument.”
A piece of what appeared to be a golf club was found at the scene, Deputy Chris Curtice told the Los Angeles Times.
Detectives are looking into a motive, but “whoever did something like this is pretty sick,” Curtice said. “It would take a long time to do it…. People should be alarmed at something like that.”
