"Franklin police department tweeted that officers were attempting to capture a chicken that had walked onto a local road in the downtown area around 5:15 p.m. local time.
`Officers are trying to wrangle a *chicken* in the downtown Franklin area,` they wrote. `It`s crossed the road & we`re working to determine why. True story.`
About 15 minutes later the police department confirmed that the chicken had been safely captured and expressed some disbelief at the situation."
Cops can`t figure out why a crackhead sells her body for five bucks, or why a meth head continues to get high even after he loses all his teeth and most of his brain cells, so they really shouldn`t tackle the eternal question: Why did the chicken cross the road?
It took 15 minutes for the police officers to capture the chicken, and it probably took them 15 seconds to toss it into the fryer.
But seriously, we can only hope and pray that the hapless chicken is enjoying life in a farm.
