HONOLULU (AP) — A 56-year-old man is accused of snapping a chicken’s neck in front of a Hawaii Target store after he was asked to leave the store because he brought a dead black bird in with him.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that Walter Anderson was arrested on Nov. 3, shortly after employees say he killed the chicken that was in a tree near the Kailua Target and then grabbed another chicken from the tree and walked off with it.
Anderson pleaded not guilty on Thursday to second-degree cruelty to animals.
Target employees allowed Anderson to purchase the items in his cart despite him waving a dead bird at people, but then asked him to leave. That’s when they say he snapped the chicken’s neck before walking away carrying another chicken.
