A Cockatrice is a magical monster that existed before and after the Great war. Cockatrices were seen in Everfree Forest and the surrounding area.
Cockatrices were treated as feared predators before the war broke out. When the war began and firearms were readily available, Cockatrices became less of a threat and were put down as dangerous animals/vermin.
Fluttershy encountered a Cockatrice that had been terrorizing the local area.
Fluttershy Lamented that Applejack had killed one, but Applejack shrugged it off, claiming it was a dangerous beast that needed to be put down.
Years later, Red Eyes Forces would drive back groups of Cockatrices when they purged the Everfree Forest using flamethrowers. Velvet Remedy would also capture one and force it to reverse the petrification of her pet balefire Phoenix, Pyrelight.
