Person stomps fowl to death immediately after Allen Park pet store didn’t give $30 refund

ALLEN PARK, Mich. – Critter Pet Store has been a mainstay in Allen Park for 43 many years.

Previous week, a 22-12 months-aged Dearborn man came into the keep with a parakeet that he preferred to return it.

The gentleman appeared irate and wanted a $30 refund for the parakeet. Operator Michael Simms was powering the counter.

“I calmed him down and continued to explain to him, ‘I’ll give you credit rating, you can get anything at all in the shop and I’ll make absolutely sure the chicken is Ok.’ With how irate he was, I did not know how he was going to care for it. I was far more nervous about the animal than just about anything,” Simms explained.

Simms opened the compact carrier and sees the chicken was wounded. On the other hand, its wing was bloody, likely bitten. He informed the 22-yr-old that he would make positive the chicken acquired health-related interest.

Caught on camera, the male grabbed the little provider, threw it to the ground and stomped the chicken to loss of life. Other buyers in the retailer were being shocked and furious.


“I was shocked, I actually did not know how to react at to start with,” he reported.

That 22-calendar year-aged took off, but Allen Park law enforcement said they were ready to track him down.

The man — who has not nonetheless been arraigned, so his name is not being introduced — is experiencing a felony animal abuse demand.
