Human Cock Guillotine Gets Off

The guy who both [illegally kept a pet rooster] and bit his head off may avoid doing hard time for his Ozzy Osbourne-esque sins. Apparently, first-offense foul decapitating doesn’t count, so if Humberto Rodriguez, 32, stays away from his feathered friends for the next six months, an [animal cruelty charge against him will be dismissed](http://www.nypost.com/seven/06122007/news/regionalnews/head_bite_cock_killer_ducks_cage_regionalnews_laura_italiano.htm). Last summer, Rodriguez was hauled into court after neighbors told ASPCA agents about a headless rooster chilling (well, dead) on a fire escape on W. 213th St. in Manhattan. According to court papers, Rodriguez told cops, “I bit the rooster’s neck. He died and then I cut its head off with a knife.” Apparently, Rodriguez was mad at the poor rooster because [it had attacked another pet](http://www.nydailynews.com/news/2007/06/12/2007-06-12_no_jail_for_biting_off_roosters_head-1.html), his baby pigeon. Aw, how sweet. The rooster’s head has yet to be found.
