Totally Messed Up and Not a Joke: Illegal Cock Fighting in DC?

I was sent the following email and I made sure that the writer notified MPD:

“I went out to the trash cans this morning to put in some recycling, and inside the paper recycling trash can were two dead chickens. Not cut up, plucked, processed chickens that you buy to eat. Whole chickens. Feathers, beaks, feet, everything. They were partially covered by other trash, and I wasn’t trying to get a really close look, but I’m pretty sure that one of them was a rooster. Which means probably exactly what you think it means.”

I know some people will say we have far more serious issues to deal with (shootings, violent crime etc.) but if this really was the result of illegal cock fighting, I’d say it’s pretty disturbing (despite loving that Seinfeld episode). I don’t really have too much more to say than this is pretty messed up. The note came from Columbia Heights.
