Wife Shoots Husband Who Shot Chicken, Police Say Neighbor Says There Were Dead Chickens All Over POSTED: 12:45 pm EDT September 6, 2006 CHESHIRE, Ore. -- An Oregon woman is accused of shooting her husband after he shot her pet chicken. The Eugene-Register Guard reported Mary Kay Gray, 58, has been jailed on felony assault charges. Her husband, Stanley Edward Gray, 43, is recovering from a gunshot wound to the shoulder. The chicken died at the scene. Lane County sheriff's Sgt. Clint Riley said the couple had been working around their yard and drinking on Labor Day. They got into an argument after Stanley Gray shot the chicken with a .44 caliber handgun. "We don't know if it was an accident or if it was on purpose," Riley said of the chicken's death. "It depends who you ask." But sheriff's deputies said Gray shot her husband with a .22 caliber rifle in an apparent act of retaliation. A neighbor said when she arrived home Monday night there were police cars clustered at the bottom of the driveway and deputies escorted her to her front door. "It looked like 'CSI,' " Cheyenne Dickenson told the Register-Guard. "There were dead chickens lying all over the place." Distributed by Internet Broadcasting Systems, Inc.
