Why did the chicken cross the road?

To get to the other side, of course. Why this particular chicken decided he needed to cross I-90 near Argonne this morning is a mystery, however. It took a SCRAPS animal control officer, four WSP troopers and a DOT employee about 45 minutes to capture the wayward bird during this morning's commute. He seemed intent on evading capture. Maybe he was on his way to visit a girlfriend?

Whatever the rooster's intent, he's now locked up at the SCRAPS shelter waiting for his owner to claim him. "We hope the owner comes and gets him soon," said SCRAPS animal protection operations manager Nicole Montano in a press release. "He is really a beautiful bird and we'd like to get him back home as soon as possible."

If you know where this bird belongs, call SCRAPS at (509) 477-2984. Photo courtesy of SCRAPS.
