This is the incredible moment a ‘badass’ rooster fought off a hawk swooping on chickens before pinning the predator to the ground.

Shasta Schlitt was at home in Kansas City, Missouri, USA, on February 26 when she heard a loud commotion coming from her back garden.

Incredible footage shows a Cooper’s hawk divebomb her five Ameraucana hens before Shasta’s rooster Jay jumped into action and chased it away.
