Dear PoP – Chickens in Rock Creek Cemetery

“Dear PoP,

3 chickens were released into Rock Creek Church Cemetery. As of yesterday afternoon, one chicken has been killed by a predator. I have seen a fox in the cemetery, so that is my guess.

I am not messing with you. I was walking my dog in the cemetery yesterday and I heard a clucking noise coming from some bushes. I walked over to the bushes and saw a black rooster. One the other side of the bushes, 4 boys were hanging out. The boys told me that there was a second chicken in the bushes (I never saw this chicken). The boys then pointed to a third, dead chicken about 20 feet.

The chickens were last seen near the north end of the pond in the bushes next to the slate terrace containing the plexiglass covered bronze crypt.

Since we’ve passed April 1st, I’m guessing this is no joke. Totally wild.
