Three boys have been arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty after two chickens were killed in a Norwich park.
Police were called to Eaton Park at about 7am today, Monday April 16.
Two bantam chickens, believed to have been stolen from a nearby home, had been attacked.
Police arrested three boys - one aged 12 and two aged 15 - at Rugg Drive, near Bluebell Road. They are being questioned at Aylsham Police Investigation Centre.
A flock of chickens which had returned to a roundabout at Ditchingham, on the Norfolk border with Suffolk, have disappeared again.
A cockeral and five hens were seen there last weekend but have been taken away after apparent concerns for their welfare.
Chickens lived on the roundabout for decades before finally being removed two years ago.
