EUGENE, OR (KPTV) -

A man upset with the Oregon Department of Revenue decided to use his chickens to express his anger.  

Police were called to the department's office on 1600 Valley River Drive in Eugene on Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators said 66-year-old Louis John Adler of Creswell was angry with the agency, so he dropped off his flock of seven chickens at their office.

A Eugene Police Department officer and a Eugene animal welfare officer worked together to round up the chickens. The chickens were then taken to a local animal shelter.

Adler was trespassed from the office.

"Chicken wrangling is not a required skill for police officers," a Eugene Police Department release states, "However, today… presented the need for the ability to catch and secure a flock left inside the office."

The Eugene Police Department initially said the chickens were released at an IRS office, but later corrected that information.
