(That title should be read in the voice of Foghorn Leghorn)
You never know what you’ll hear on the other end of a 9-1-1 call. Here’s one I took the other night.
Now, this came in from a disconnected cell phone, so there was no way to pin-point it’s location, and no way to call it back.
Fortunately, these chickens sounded Code 4 (no assistance needed) to my ear, so I’m not real concerned about their status. (the voices you hear are background noises in the dispatch center, picked up when I transferred the recording to my phone. The call was only clucking.)
When I was a kid, we raised some chickens, and I learned the difference between contented clucking, and panic clucking. This sounds like contented clucking, to me.
This was a first. I’ve never taken a 9-1-1 call, even an accidental one, from a chicken before. I’ve heard stories of cats and dogs calling 9-1-1 during actual emergencies, but I haven’t experienced that. Maybe that’s something for the future.
