WHO KILLED 300,000 CHICKENS IN CLARENDON COUNTY, S.C.?

|| By FITSNEWS ||  South Carolina law enforcement officials are on the hunt for a mass murderer … of chickens.

How many victims are we talking about?  An estimated 300,000 dead birds at more than a dozen locations, if reports from Columbia, S.C. television station WLTX TV 19 (CBS – Columbia, S.C.) are to be believed.

That’s $1.7 million worth of dead chickens.

According to the Clarendon County Sheriff’s office, the perpetrator(s) of the crime are familiar with the alarm systems used to protect the chicken houses and notify farmers of changes in temperature.  The assailants have also hit only those facilities raising chickens for Pilgrim’s Pride – a Greeley, Colorado-based company owned by Brazilian food giant JBS.

“Seems like a big story,” one of our regular readers noted.

Indeed …

Hopefully the cops will figure out “whodunit,” although we would encourage our network of sources to let us know if they’ve got any information on the case.  If so, feel free to contact us on the tip line.  Or via email.  All tips are kept strictly confidential.

UPDATE: Police have made an arrest in the case.

It ain’t funny, that’s real money. 300,000 chickens @ $2 Bucks a pound.

The Happy Meal index will be affected.

Make jokes all you want, but chickens, are South Carolina’s 3rd most important agriculture product in this state, not to mention the farms vandalized are owned by hard working individuals, who have had their livelihood’s damaged by these criminals. While the company will feel the loss, the growers bare the brunt of the cost and loss due to this senseless crime. For the criminals safety lets hope the police catch these individuals before they are caught by one of the farmers on their property.
