According to @Springer Publications, a 76-year-old woman In Australia was the victim of a fatal rooster attack by her domestic animal on her rural property while collecting eggs. https://www.springer.com/

The bird pecked her lower left leg causing significant hemorrhage with collapse and death. The decedent’s past medical history included treated hypertension, hyperlipidemia, non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, and varicose veins.

At autopsy, the major findings were limited to the lower left leg which was covered with adherent dried blood. Two small bleeding lacerations were present, one of which was located immediately over a perforated large varix. Death was therefore due to exsanguination from bleeding varicose veins following an attack by a rooster.

This case demonstrates that even relatively small domestic animals may be able to inflict lethal injuries in individuals if there are specific vascular vulnerabilities present.
