Cock arrested for pecking the lawyer

A cock in Salem city, Chennai, forgot the pecking order of life and paid for it by cooling its feet at the local police station. Fortunately for it, its ordeal lasted for only a day.

The cock, reared by Kamala Periyathambi on Chatram Road,  was arrested by the Salem Police for allegedly pecking at advocate C Vijayakumar’s legs while he was on his morning walk.

A case was registered under section 289 of the IPC which holds a person responsible for ensuring that the animal in their possession does not endanger human life. The rogue cock was produced before a judicial magistrate on Wednesday and Kamala was fined Rs 250.

“Vijayakumar was on his morning walk at the time and sustained minor injuries. He consulted a doctor and was given first aid,” said the Police.

This was not the first time that the cock had allegedly harassed Vijayakumar, who, unfortunately for it is an advocate. The 50-year-old advocate said , “The same cock had chased me down the street a few months ago. This time, I lodged a complaint at the Sevvapet Police Station,” .

Investigating Officer and Sub-Inspector Rajan Babu said after the first incident police had warned Kamala to ensure that her hens and cocks don’t stray on the streets. “But she ignored our warning,” he said.

The rouge cock was released after the owner Kamala paid 250 Rs as Court fine.
