Eight chickens, five goats

killed at high school farm

June 6, 2013 | 0 comments

More than a dozen animals - including eight chickens and five goats - were found bludgeoned to death or with their necks hacked at an urban farm operated by students at a Detroit alternative high school for pregnant girls.

The animals were believed to have been killed late Thursday or early Friday at the Catherine Ferguson Academy on Detroit's west side.

A cat also was found dead.

"It looks like some crazy person had gone crazy on the animals," school principal Asenath Andrews told the Detroit Free Press. "They were fine when we left yesterday. They're all dead today except for one chicken and one cat."

A volunteer who helps students take care of the farm found the animals Friday morning, according to WXYZ-TV.

Young women with children ages 3 and younger also are enrolled in the school, which is operated by the Wayne County Regional Service Agency.

No classes are held on Fridays and no students were around when the dead animals were found.

"I'm worried about the girls," said Andrews. "The animals belong to the girls. The girls belong to me. I'm worried about them, not the animals. I'm worried about their safety."

Students at the charter school work the farm and sell their produce to area farmer's markets.

The Michigan Humane Society is investigating the animals' deaths.
