Dammit! Finally snuffed that rooster, didn't really mean to do it.
Used rubber heads on my old arrows and my old bow and cranked it down to 25 or so pounds. It was one of the most annoying animals ever, it crowed
nonstop for months now, it got on my nerves more then half a year ago, every time anybody was outside, sometimes literally for over 5 hours straight
once at every noise it would crow. I was just going to shoot it once, so it would shut up for once in a while, didn't think it would actually hurt
it that much, maybe a bruise or something.
It limped away after it got hit, and hid in a bush, looked hurt but It didn't look like it took that much damage. However it died the next day, and
in the morning sometime after it left its coop, as it was still alive and kicking at night in the coop, not sure if from the rubber arrow I shot at
it, or from something that got it in its weakened state.
But found it in pieces the next morning not far from the chicken house and half eaten. It was one of the most loud and annoying prone to fight and
attack roosters ever, if it was only half as loud, or it would shut up once in a while, I would have left it alone.
I feel kind of sorry for it, I really do, still dont know why it was so dam non stop crowing all the time.
But I think that we left them all wild, run anywhere, and in this place it just made the poor guy go all defensive and attack prone on anything that
moved with its one instinct of creating constant noise to freak predators away, which ultimately lead to its demise. That or it was to dam cocky, for
whatever crazy rooster reason, it had in its tiny rooster head, it would run up behind you act like it was going to attack, sometimes it would jump at
your foot, then when you turn around it would run away and start crowing, then repeat that again when you turn around again. It was one cooky rooster
I give it that. There is a fine line between being brave and cooky and being just plain stupid.
Really do feel bad for the guy, I thought it would just be limping for a few days, hopefully a month or so, then get back to its old way and be less
prone to constant attacking, being cooky, and crowing nonstop when anybody was in its line of sight both as a challenge and whenever it was
frightened, but dam it was annoying, and.... RIP Mimzy. Cause of death? It just would not shut up, and misjudgement on bow poundage to rubber arrow
head to possible damage on small animals.
Gonna have to fence them all in, and not let them all run loose everywhere when we get a new rooster and have time.
Yup, contrary to popular believe, the rooster did die, flesh and blood creatures are such fragile things.

Actually no. He never had any other name then "that rooster" for most of his life.
He was here for almost two years now, and only really started getting all fighting and annoying as hell at the end of summer. At the beginning of last
summer I did not even notice him most days, and when he was small, the guy was really quite, but eventually he kept getting cockier and cockier in
the summer, till it got to the point were if anybody was outside he would non stop crow, and if anybody got near him or the chickens he would fake
attack, or once in a while actually try to take you on, that or annoy the hell out of you constantely. I think he did it on purpose because he knew I
couldn't catch him most times.
He only got the name Mimzy close to the end of summer when he really just would not quit it or grow out of it, everybody else around here used to call
him Bob, but I started calling him Mimzy. Because, well you know, the "Shut up mimzy" line from South Park.
Feel sorry actually. A few times he tried attacking me I kicked him, then he would shut up for the rest of the day, but be back it the next day. I
thought that if he knew I could get him from anywhere, since most times he was to fast for me, and he would eventually quite down knowing that I
could catch him if I wanted to. But didn't work out like I planed.
