Man Bites Cock

What is it with New Yorkers and their strange pets? Last year, this guy in the Bronx went to the hospital because his pet alligator (which lived in his kitchen) had attacked him.

Now, the ASPCA has charged Humberto Rodriguez with one count of animal cruelty after a month-long investigation into Mr. Rodriguez's treatment of this pet rooster. The ASPCA was called by neighbors of Humberto after a headless rooster appeared on his fire escape.

Mr. Rodriguez was upset at his pet rooster because it was fighting with one of his other pets, a baby pigeon. So Humberto bit his cock's head off (sorry, I always wanted to use that statement in a post) and placed his dead cock on the fire escape for all to see.

I love New York.
