David Pescovitz: A four-year-old’s screams killed hundreds of chickens, according to a court in the eastern China province of Jiangsu. Frightened by a dog, the little boy apparently cried loudly near the hen house window for quite a while. From Metro.co.uk:

A court ruled the boy’s screaming was “the only unexpected abnormal sound” and that the 443 chickens trampled each other to death in fear.

The boy’s father was ordered to pay around £117 in compensation to the owner of the chickens.
