The Lure and the Chicken

The other day, my wife, son and I were sitting by the fire, and suddenly Jamie, my son saw one of our chickens out in the yard with what turns out to be , of all things, a 00 Mepps vintage lure hooked next to her tear gland right by the edge of her eye with one of the 3 barbed hooks. The second one was hooked into her wattle. The remaining hook was free. We covered her up and held firm as i first tried to get it out . Cutting the hook ended up working and least hurting. As a fisherman i try not to lose my terminal tackle, but this one too got away. It does prove that birds will eat them. Thanks god all is well. Thus the lure on my hat brim.
