Chicken killings prompts public meeting


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A community meeting will be held Thursday night to talk about the spike in chicken murders in the metro area.

“I don’t know who does this i mean if it’s witchcraft or what,” Michael Gabaldon, co-owner of Romero Cemetery said.

The owner of a north valley cemetery says he’s found bones, feathers and heads of decapitated chickens on tombstones last week.

The culprits crept out at night to do the deed.

The grim discovery came on the heels of at least three reported cases in the past month of chickens being strangled and decapitated in people’s back yards.

It’s still unclear who is behind the crimes.

The public meeting is set up for 6 o’clock Thursday tonight at the Immanuel Presbyterian Church near Central and Carlisle.

APD and animal welfare officers will be there to answer questions.
