The story behind how Jonathan Crane roosted a crane at his home in South Carolina has been making the rounds on social media.
In the photo, Crane can be seen hanging off of a crane roosting on the roof of his house.
Crane says that he and his family had been doing well until one day his wife died of natural causes.
He said the crane rooster did not fly up to them and then began attacking them with its talons and teeth.
“When we found out what happened, we just had to take action.
We knew we had to do something.
So, we started calling the police.
We called the sheriff’s department,” Crane said.
The sheriff’s office responded and put out an alert, telling the public to stay indoors and stay away from the house.
But Crane says the sheriff was unaware of the incident and took no action against him.
“The first thing the sheriff said was, ‘How many times do I have to tell you that you have to stay away, Jon?’
But we had nothing to show for it.
I got the notice and was going to go to jail,” Crane told ABC News.
Crocane says that the sheriff and his staff didn’t respond to his plea for help, so he was sent to the hospital.
Crane was eventually released after being taken to the jail, where he was placed in solitary confinement for two weeks.
Crane said that he was denied his right to counsel at the jail.
The incident took a personal toll on Crane.
He says he’s been diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder.
“I’ve been in a lot of pain, and I’m trying to put the pain behind me.
I’m just trying to move on and be positive.
It’s hard to explain to my kids how I feel about this.
I just feel like I can’t tell them anymore,” Crane, an Army veteran, told ABC affiliate WAGA.
Crane, who said that his wife has Alzheimer’s disease, said that the jail was a difficult experience.
“They told me to just be quiet and not tell them anything.
And they kept telling me to be quiet, which was frustrating.
And I didn’t have a choice.
They put me in solitary for two and a half weeks.
And now I’m still locked up in there,” Crane says.
