Chicken tries to cross road - taken into police custody!

London: In a bizarre incident in the UK, a chicken was taken into police custody after it was spotted crossing the road in the middle of rush hour.

Police in East Marketgait, Dundee, were called to an incident in which the feathery bird was spotted wandering across the tarmac in the middle of rush hour.

Here's what they wrote on Facebook

It was seen in the morning on Friday and officers arrived after drivers reported the endangered hen. The chicken was "giving passing motorists cause for concern," Tayside Police Division police was quoted as saying by The Mirror.

Officers managed to capture the lone bird and take it back to the station. On Facebook, the police said, "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," police said. Tayside police posted an appeal on Facebook in a bid to find the chicken's owner.

The Facebook post was shared by many netizens. The comments read, "I think it was being egged on by someone."

"I think it was being egged on by someone," Bill Barclay said.

Ann Sellars predictably commented: "To get to the other side."

Chris Elcombe added: "I suspect fowl play..."

"She was afraid someone would Caesar!" wrote Enn Cee Nadz .

And that man Bill Baclay popped up again, this time with, "Was it not just playing Chicken with the motorists."
