New pheasants to make the inmates more pleasant

Posted at 8:45 PM, May 04, 2016

Inmates at the Erie County Holding Center have some fine-feathered new friends to help them get their lives back on track.

Pheasant chicks were delivered Wednesday as part of a new rehabilitation program.

The program is intended to help inmates with new skills, while also re-establishing the pheasant population throughout Erie County.
