Chickens In French Coop 'Gang Up And Kill Fox'

Share this article


A group of chickens are believed to have killed a fox that broke into their coop in France.

The strange incident happened at a farming school in Brittany.

A young fox is thought to have broken into the coop housing around 3,000 chickens during the night.

However, it became trapped due to light-controlled automatic hatch doors.

School officials told the AFP news agency they found the fox's body the following morning.

Pascal Daniel, the head of farming at Le Gros-Chêne school, said: "There was a herd instinct and they attacked him with their beaks."

He noted that a similar coop invasion by a fox in the past ended up much worse for the chickens.
