Trophy Descriptions

"Now here's a creature that's just poultry in motion. It usually minds its own business, but if you attack it, the chickens will come home to roost -- by body-slamming you over and over... and over... A pretty fowl tactic if you ask me. it's almost futile to fight back, and eventually, they'll lose interest and stop driving you Cucco."
