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. 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.

The rooster’s head has yet to be found.
