— A Taylor Road, Negley, woman reported at 7:38 a.m. Wednesday dogs entered their chicken coop and killed the chickens. There were reportedly two dogs — a male boxer and a female mix breed — which had entered the a-frame chicken coop, forcing their way through a corner where the metal was not secured. The carcasses of 28 chickens were strewn throughout the coop. The dog warden secured the dogs, which had gotten stuck inside the coop after they entered it, and they were taken to the pound until their owner comes forward.
