According to Eugene Police, At about 12:21 p.m., a man who was angry with the agency dropped off his flock of seven chickens. A Eugene Police officer responded and called a Eugene animal welfare officer and together they herded and rounded up the chickens, which were then taken to 1st Avenue Shelter.
Chicken wrangling is not a required skill for police officers. However, today, a call to respond to the Oregon Department of Revenue office, 1600 Valley River Drive, Suite 310, presented the need for the ability to catch and secure a flock left inside the office.
The man who left the chickens, Louis John Adler, age 66, of Creswell, was trespassed from the location.
