Woman slammed for cooking pet rooster after it ‘pecked daughter’s face’

A woman has been slammed for admitting that she killed her pet rooster and turned it into nuggets after it pecked her daughter's face.

Magan Schmidt posted a picture of some frying chicken pieces with the caption: "Well, it finally happened. Our mean ole backyard rooster, HeiHei, attacked the baby child!!

"We were so lucky that he didn't do any more damage than he did. Half an inch, and she would have lost an eye”.

She added that the rooster “got what was coming to him”.

“Mama don't play when it comes to her babies”, she said

The post of the cooking chicken, which she called “HeiHei nuggets” drew ire from the internet.

One commenter questioned Magan’s role in the incident: "If you knew it was an issue, why didn't you do more to prevent it? Also to add, anyone that knows anything about raising chickens for livestock knows a full grown, adult cock is not food. At all”.

Another wasn’t happy that the woman took revenge against the animal: “I know people eat chickens all the time, but killing it specifically because it attacked your child doesn't sit right with me when children are known to antagonise animals”.

Some commenters, however, agreed with what she did.

One supporter said that killing and eating animals was just the way the world worked: "We live in a soft world. If you didn’t grow up on a farm or live like this, don't comment. It’s life. Get over it”.

While the internet may have slammed Magan for her actions, she may not be alone in her choice to cook and eat her pet.

According to a paper published in Poultry Science, a research publication that focuses on poultry-related knowledge, 93% of Americans who buy chickens for their homes bought them for the purpose of providing eggs, meat or both, while only 57% of respondents said they bought chickens as pets.
