Why did the chicken cross the road? We still don't know - but one brave chicken attempted to do just that and ended up in a police cell. According to eyewitnesses, police officers in Scotland chased a chicken and took it to the station after it was found crossing a road and scaring motorists. Dundee police said that they were called on Friday around 8:30 a.m., after several drivers reported that they saw the chicken wandering on the road.
The officers who responded to the scene, chased the chicken and caught it. The chicken was then taken to the police station, where it will be kept until the owner claims it.
The chicken is being cared for by the Scotland Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Police are appealing to the public for information that might help them locate the chicken's owner.
A Tayside Police spokesperson said: “The bird was traced safe and well and has been brought to our police station. The SSPCA has been contacted and will be attending to take care of the chicken until the owner is traced. Police are appealing for any information as to why the chicken was crossing the road.”
