Prague, May 16 (CTK) - Czech Michal Kolesar, 35, steals hens reared at large-scale farms because he wants to save them, the daily Pravo writes today.

"For somebody it is just a few hens, but for me its their life," vegetarian Kolesar told the paper.

He said he has stolen 74 hens so far. He said he could not steal more hens because he could not provide a good home for them.

Kolesar knows he may go to prison for the crime, but he openly speaks about what he does and he even posts videos documenting his hen-saving missions on the Internet (

He told the paper a lawyer told him that he would be punished, but "the saved lives are more than fines or prison."
