BEIJING, China (Reuters) -- Hundreds of chickens have been found dead in east China -- and a court has ruled that the cause of death was the screaming of a four-year-old boy who in turn had been scared by a barking dog, state media reported on Wednesday.

The bizarre sequence events began when the boy arrived at a village home in the eastern province of Jiangsu in the summer with his father who was delivering bottles of gas, the Nanjing Morning Post reported.

A villager was quoted as saying the little boy bent over the henhouse window, screaming for a long time, after being scared by the dog.

"One neighbor told police that he had heard the boy's crying that afternoon and another villager confirmed the boy screaming by the henhouse window," the newspaper said.

A court ruled the boy's screaming was "the only unexpected abnormal sound" and that 443 chickens trampled each other to death in fear.

The boy's father was ordered to pay 1,800 yuan ($230) in compensation to the owner of the chickens.

I read this to my boyfriend and this was his take on it:

I think the real story is 443 chickens died of bird flu and the Chinese government not wanting to admit to an outbreak used the state controlled press to publish an amusing story about a little boy to distract from the truth!

I don't know. I feel like it's possible, because strange things happen in real life, but as soon as he told me his take on it, I went...hmm.

The boy is obviously a witch. You'd don't need to convene the Inquisition to know that.
