It's late everybody is asleep even my husband. I am so pumped right now I'm still shaking. So I have to tell you. My neighbor had 6 chickens 2 roosters. But they have been disappering one by one. All he has left is one rooster. Neighbors say it is fox that are steeling the chickens. They were so cool. They would all hop his fence and walk across the street. Hop the fence into my back yard. My dogs didnt care. Kinda all over this block. Tonight I was watching tv when I hurd the rooster in my front yard. And he was in distress. I quickly went and opened the front door and a fox was dragging the rooster across the street. I leaped off my porch and ran twards the fox yelling and screeming. The fox dropped the rooster and ran down the street. And the lifeless body laid in the middle of the street. o no Scotts last rooster is dead. I walked over to it and thought what do I do now. The fox was paceing back and forth down the street under the street lamp. I couldnt leave it for the fox to carry off and eat. I stood there for a minute and then ran into my house to get the flashlight that was behind the door and ran back out to the rooster. I shined the flashlight at the glowing eyes of the fox. He was just waiting for me to leave. I shined the flashlight on the rooster for a few seconds and then I thought I saw him take a breath. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me so I shinned the flashlight to the roosters head and his eyes blinked.He was alive.But I was sure he was hurt cause he did not move at all. I watched him for a couple of minutes while his breathing improved. And when I thought it was ok I touched his tail and he jumped right up.He stood real close to me. I think he was a little shocky. But I took a little step and he did too. So taking little baby steps the rooster and I walked across the street to my front yard. But out of the corner of my eye I see that fox not 20 feet from me. So I took off after it yelling and screaming shacking my flashlight. The fox ran off empty handed. The rooster and I walked across my yard and driveway to our boat. He jumped up and perched himself on the rail. I walked over to Scotts door and bang on it and yelled for him to come outside. I walked back to the rooster and with the flashlight I could see blood on his poor little crown and all but one of his long tail feathers was gone. Scott came out. I told him what happened. He gently picked up the rooster looked at him and besides the blood on his crown and the lack of tail feathers he looked fine. Then he took the rooster into his house. I never have felt this way before. I saved the last rooster from certain death. One of Gods little creatures. I am so glad that he is safe. I just feel real good right now. Had to tell you about it.
