Rooster Attacks A Boy
The Latin Reader - March 28, 1895


Would Have Killed the Lad But For a Speedy Rescue.
Womelsdorf, Pa., March 28

A large rooster to-day attacked little Sammel Illig, and the boy was only saved by his family. He is a son of S. W. Illig, and had gone into the yard to feed the chickens. The ferocious rooster flew upon his back and began to sink his beak in the lad's neck. The angry fowl was also using his sharp spurs, and the boy was unable to dislodge his assailant. He screamed in pain and another member of the family rushed out, and with a club beat off the savage bird.
