Insert cock joke here

This isn’t the first time a cock has been pulled for a bird’s benefit.

Gloucestershire Echo, 7 October 2010 (story):

Terrified cockerel pulled from wheelie bin

A FRIGHTENED cockerel is lucky to be alive after being rescued from a wheelie bin outside a block of flats in Gloucester.

After an ordeal similar to that of Lola the cat – seen on CCTV being dumped in a Coventry bin – the flustered bird in Gloucester was rescued by a resident.

The abandoned animal – named Freddie – was found in a bin at the end of a driveway in The Limes, Barnwood, on Tuesday.

The bin had been left out for collection, but luckily the frantic bird was found by a resident before the bin men arrived.

Right, close your eyes… imagine you’re a junior news reporter on a local paper, i.e. the one who will get lumbered with a story like this. You need to build your story around some hysterical quotes, clearly, but who do you go to?

The RSPCA? Well, obviously.

RSPCA inspector Josie Oak said: “I am disgusted that someone has placed a living animal inside a wheelie bin and am keen to hear from anyone who knows who was responsible.”

A local councillor? OK, if you must…

Barnwood councillor Phil McLellan said: “It’s pretty appalling that someone could dump a live bird in a bin like that.

A poultry farmer? Sounds reasonable enough.

A poultry farmer based near Gloucester, who didn’t want to give her name, described the act as “despicable”.

A representative from a local ‘egg-hatching business’ called wehatchanyegg.com? Surely that would just be shameless advertising and definitely a step too far for civilisation… no, it can’t be done.

Kirsty Tallon, from Stroud-based egg hatching business wehatchanyegg.com, said: “I’m really shocked that anyone could do something like that. However it happened, it’s not the sort of thing anyone should be doing to any animal.”

Oh dear.

Thanks to Gez Daring for sharing his cock-pulling with the group.
