SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at Tuesday September 12 2017 7 News Cheryl’s not crowing • By Georgia O’Connor- Harding FREE CHERYL Haglund is far from impressed after six roosters mysteriously appeared on her front lawn in the night. A band of silky cross roosters were dumped at her lifestyle block at Holmlea Farms based on Waterholes Rd, Rolleston overnight recently. Mrs Haglund is now calling for residents to take responsibility for their own animals rather than casting them off to other people. “Somebody has the damn bloody cheek to dump their six roosters on my property in the night . . . they didn’t even have the decency to say I have got these roosters, I don’t want them anymore, are you able to find a place for them,” she said. Mrs Haglund said she would have taken the roosters and found homes for them anyway. So far she has managed to catch three of the roosters. “People think I have got a lot of chooks, I am not going to notice half a dozen more. I know just about all my chooks personally,” Mrs Haglund said. Being on the pension, she said she is struggling to feed her own animals as it is. Mrs Haglund cares for a range of animals on her lifestyle block including a cow, donkey, sheep, goat and mini-horses. “I’ve sold chickens and young chooks and I have always said to anybody who has taken them from me if by chance it turns out to be PROBLEM: Cheryl Haglund with two of the six roosters that mysteriously appeared on her front lawn during the night.

It is not the first time for Mrs Haglund, who had two fluffy bunnies abandoned on her property about four years ago which she re-homed. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Have you had animals dumped on your property?
