Chicken tries to cross the road, police keep it from getting to other side

Posted: Updated:

Australian police rescue a chicken from the middle of the road early this morning. The bird's efforts to cross the street near a fast food restaurant at 4:30 this morning were thwarted by the officers.

Upon investigation, officers found that "Nuggets" had gone missing from an area elementary school. Nuggets stayed in police custody for a few hours after this "eggciting development", and he was eventually returned to the school.

Students reported to police that 3 of their chickens had gone missing the night before. Officers found another bird nearby where Nuggets was apprehended; "Chook Chook" was also returned to the students.

The whereabouts of the third bird are unknown.
