Police ‘arrest’ wandering chicken after complaints
AUGUSTA: Police in Maine captured a chicken after complaints from restaurant goers that the animal was running wild in the vicinity.
According to eyewitness Susan Kimball, she said she saw the police apprehending the chicken who ended up crossing four lanes of traffic on a nearby interstate.
Police released a photo of the chicken on their Facebook page alongside a tongue-in-cheek description of what happened including how the fowl had a “craving for soup, salad and breadsticks.”
The chicken is now in protective custody of Officer Brad Chase, who keeps chickens as police attempt to find the original owner.
