Among the random debris along the Edison Highway I saw a dead rooster on top a pile of computer equipment. I stopped and stared till a police car pulled up and the officer asked me what I was doing. I pointed out the rooster. He said, “Again?” and sped off.
I searched the local news for clues as to the cop’s response. No mentions of roosters on trash heaps were found. However, there were many mentions of other animals being dumped there. Mostly dogs, lots of rodents and one unbranded calf. The word unbranded was in bold. That’s important apparently.
