Right after the staff denied the request to throw the hen into the alligator pen, the gentlemen took off with her.

“They explained who they ended up to me and I realized accurately in which they lived so we went more than there, they arrived out and said they don’t have a chicken, and I mentioned, you had been just pounding on my entrance door with it. I claimed, I just want the fowl,” English reported.

English states he had to spend them $15 to rescue her and he thinks this animal was stolen.

“She’s a sweetheart so she’s definitely very employed to human beings, anyone elevated her quite closely. You could tell with the temperament of a chicken pretty simply,” English mentioned.

English submitted a law enforcement report and claims he’s on a mission to get Doris home… anywhere that may possibly be.
