A conclusion of accidental death was recorded at Caernarfon on Robert Thomas, 77, who lived in nearby Caeathro,
His widow Jean said they had been at home watching TV when Mr Thomas decided it was time to put their hens back in a hut. He couldn’t find one of them and she went outside to give him a hand.
