Roosters Seized from Grand Island Home

Posted: Updated:


A central Nebraska shelter is caring for some feathered friends after officers seized several roosters from a Grand Island mobile home.

Police were called to the home for a report of kids trying to fight roosters.

When an officer and an animal control worker arrived Wednesday afternoon, they found eight roosters, two of which were dead.

While city law allows some residents to have chickens, roosters aren't allowed in city limits.

An officer told a man who claimed the birds that he isn't allowed to have roosters on his property.

The roosters were impounded, and Human Society officials are waiting to see if they will be surrendered, returned to the owner or if there will be a court hearing on the matter.
