Man accused of snapping chicken’s neck at Target store

HONOLULU (AP) — A 56-year-old man is accused of snapping a chicken’s neck in front of a Hawaii Target store after he was asked to leave the store because he brought a dead black bird in with him.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that Walter Anderson was arrested on Nov. 3, shortly after employees say he killed the chicken that was in a tree near the Kailua Target and then grabbed another chicken from the tree and walked off with it.

Anderson pleaded not guilty on Thursday to second-degree cruelty to animals.

Target employees allowed Anderson to purchase the items in his cart despite him waving a dead bird at people but then asked him to leave. That’s when they say he snapped the chicken’s neck before walking away carrying another chicken. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
