Live chicken in my apartment building.

This was a first for me.
I was on the elevator, heading to work, and I saw someone bring a live chicken from their apartment onto the elevator.  I did not notice the chicken at first.  Several people came on the elevator at once, and one of them had an infant in their arms.  The infant was getting all the attention.  The lady carrying the chicken had put it in a plastic shopping bag like can be had anytime you go shopping in Canada.  Usually, the bags are used to put garbage in.  This bad was tied up like it had garbage in it, and the lady was holding onto the bag like she was about to take the garbage out.  All I could see of the chicken was its head sticking out of one opening in the bag, and some of its tail sticking out from the other. 
All sorts of questions as to what the chicken had been doing in the apartment and its eventual fate.

    Yup, i can pretty much imagine your feelings. I saw people kill live chicken before when i was a child in Wuxi. From then onwards, i had phobia of seeing animals with feathers.
