CLUCK NEWS: Chicken Fails to Cross Road! Why you ask? Read all about it in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune

In a classic Man-Bites-Dog story the Sarasota Herald Tribune has revealed that a Manatee County chicken failed to cross a road. The road in question? Manatee County Road 675.

And unlike in imponderable mysteries of why chickens do successfully cross roads, in this case "authorities" have documented exactly how and why the crossing attempt failed.

:::::::::::SPOILER ALERT:::::::::::::::

It was hit by a Manatee County Sheriff's Office Squad car!

Read all about it (all four lines) here on page 3 of the Police Report.

Accidents such as this one emphasize the importance of confining pets to the owner's property, both for the safety of the pet and the motoring public.

CLUCK's emphasis on BACKYARD chickens is not merely a considerate gesture to those who don't like chicken aesthetics, it is a deliberate effort to keep these animals out of harm's way.
