Moment goat and rooster rush to save chicken from hawk attack In an attack that lasted just 17 seconds, a hawk attempted to prey on a farmer’s chicken, but a goat and a rooster managed to save the bird. Incredible CCTV footage shows the hawk dive-bombing a brown chicken
Jaap Beets, a farmer in Gelderland, in the Netherlands, was in his farmhouse on Sept. 5 when he heard a commotion coming from his livestock outside.
“I was so proud of the rooster and the goat jumping in to defend our chicken,” farmer Beets, 59, told SWNS. “I was also very relieved that the chicken survived.”
The chicken suffered minor injuries— but Beets said the other farm animals “rallied around her” to mend her back to full health.
Meanwhile, this wasn’t the first time farmer Beets has experienced such drama — his other goats and turkeys have jumped in to rescue his chickens twice before.
“In the seven years I have lived here, it’s the third attack on our chickens,” he said. “This was the second from a goshawk and the other was a buzzard.”
