The chicken that tied up traffic on the Bay Bridge yesterday morning has been caught and delivered to Oakland Animal Services, Bay City News reports.
The chicken was apparently apprehended by the California Highway Patrol around 10:00 a.m. yesterday. It was first taken to the Berkeley Animal Services shelter before being transferred to Oakland.
Tiana Scott, the manager of the Oakland shelter, told the Bay City News, “We do have the chicken in our custody and a potential owner has called us. It looks very healthy. It’s walking around and talking a lot. It’s a vibrant chicken, well fleshed.”
If no one comes forward to claim ownership of the chicken, it may be available for adoption.
