The 67-year-old was killed after a particularly vicious chicken decided to attack him back in April of last year.
Some animals can undoubtedly prove deadly and it is not unusual to hear about people being mauled to death by bears, lions, sharks and other dangerous creatures.
But what about poultry ?
In what can only be described as a freak accident, 67-year-old Jasper Kraus from Ballinasloe in the Netherlands died last year from injuries sustained by a chicken.
The irate Brahm, which for some reason had taken sudden exception to him, had managed to drive its spur into his leg, creating a wound so severe that the resulting blood loss ended up killing him.
When he was found by his lodger, he was lying in a pool of blood and was only able to utter the word 'rooster' before he died.
When medics arrived, they attempted to revive him but it was too late.
It was determined that he had suffered a heart attack due to the excessive blood loss.
His daughter later cited the incident as a warning to others of the dangers of keeping chickens.
"People should be aware of the signs and get rid of any bird as soon as they show signs of aggression," she said.
