Rare Rooster Attack

Rare Rooster Attack

Posted: Updated:

September 4, 2019

As reported by Fox News and the journal Forensic Science, Medicine and Pathology, an Australian woman died after being attacked by an aggressive rooster as she was collecting eggs from a chicken coop on her property. The freak attack, undated in the report but presumed to have occurred sometime earlier this year, resulted in the pecking rooster puncturing a varicose vein in the 76-year-old woman's leg. The woman subsequently passed out due to the rapid loss of blood that resulted and hemorrhaged to death.

According to the FSMP report, the attack, though certainly out of the ordinary, nevertheless demonstrates that “even relatively small domestic animals may be able to inflict lethal injuries in individuals if there are specific . . . vulnerabilities present.”
