CLUCKING HELL! MAN SUES FOR FOWL ROOSTER ATTACK


A MAN who claims he was attacked by a rooster is crying fowl and suing  a surburban animal center for more $50,000 because the bird "repeatedly pecked his right leg.
Mark Lovett says he was putting he was putting up a fence at the Big Run Wolf Ranch in Lockport, Illinois TWO YEARS AGO when the fearless fowl struck.
Apparently it caused him "great pain and anguish, both in mind and body," according to the lawsuit filed in Will County circuit court this week.
His claim adds hat the bird was "not provoked" before it plunged in it's beak, but he doesn't detail the exact injuries caused by the bird.  
It's not the first time that a personal injury lawsuit his been launched after an
angry bird struck.
A woman filed a similar lawsuit in Massachusetts in 2007 alleging a rooster had attacked her when she tried to buy some eggs from a roadside stand.
We also reported the death of a California man who died after he was cut by a fighting rooster's metal spur.
