A Creswell man apparently upset with the state revenue office released a flock of chickens inside the agency’s field office near Valley River Center on Wednesday.

A Eugene police officer ­responded to the state ­Department of Revenue office about 12:20 p.m., shortly after the man, identified as Louis J. Adler, 66, released seven chickens in the office lobby.

The officer and a ­responding animal welfare officer gathered up the birds and took them to the First ­Avenue Shelter.

Representatives of the Greenhill Humane ­Society, which operates the shelter, didn’t immediately return messages seeking comment.
