According to area police boss, the accused was found in the act by his 10-year-old son who alerted his elder brother and jointly they reported the matter to the chief leading to his arrest.
The chicken which reportedly belonged to his eldest son was also taken to the police station but died shortly and has so far been taken to a veterinary doctor for postmortem to establish the cause of death.
