Watch Vest-Wearing Chickens Cross Road Safely

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A bed and breakfast in Scotland fitted a group of chickens with high-visibility vests to help them cross a local road.

Glenshieling House shared video Friday of a pair of chickens wearing the bright pink vests as they strolled across the rainy street.

Louise Lennox, owner of the Perthsire bed and breakfast, told STV she has 14 hens and a few have a tendency to wander off the property.

Lennox hopes the vests will help drivers spot the chickens and encourage them to slow down."

The existential question "why did the chicken cross the road?" will forever remain a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma, but the owner of a bed and breakfast has outfitted her chickens with bright pink vests so that they will survive the perilous crossing of the road by her property.

Louise Lennox, owner of the Perthsire bed and breakfast, printed the phrase "Glenshieling House Girl" on the vests to advertise her business. Methinks she cares more about advertising her business than she does about the welfare of her chickens.

What say you? Is Lennox an animal rights hero or is she an animal abuser who put on vests on her chickens that hinders their ability to fly and keeps them unbearably hot on summer days?
