Mike, The Headless Chicken!!!!!!

vendredi, septembre 10th, 2010

I was reading my daily Wikipedia article this morning. The main info was on a salmonella attack in the US, 1984. Not very interesting. Then, in the selected anniversaries section, Mike The headless chicken.

On Sept 10, 1945, Mike a chicken 5 months old, was partially decapitated and most of his (its?) head chopped. The dude lived afterwards for 18 months!! 18 months without head.

During his (its?) new life, the dude earned 4500k$ per month!!!

You can check him here.

Checkout the conclusion on this site dedicated to Mike:

Mike’s will to live remains an inspiration. It is a great comfort to know you can live a normal life, even after you have lost your mind.

Thank you Mike! Thanks Wikipedia!
