Monte Jackson who founded Sahsa Farm told Fox 2 that it's not uncommon for animals to get loose in the city of Detroit.

"They have all this urban farming going on in Detroit so people think they can have chickens and farm animals and they can't," he said. "They get cited for it and they have to get rid of it.
