    I would have loved to put this thread in the jokes section but it is serious breaking news.

    Jersey is being terrorised by feral chickens.

    The birds roam the island in packs as much as 100 strong and are waking people, tearing up gardens and terrorising joggers.

    A solution, yes, but not a good one.

    Jersey does not have foxes, people trying to fix problems like this by releasing predators animals have learned to their cost the environmental hazards.

    Seems they have ferrets and polecats but no weasels. Introducing a new apex predator causes serious ecological problems

    Grizzly bears.
    They won't harm the chickens, but there'll be no humans anymore to be bothered.
