Race against the cluck as chickens run on LA-area highway

LOS ANGELES

LOS ANGELES (AP) — It was a race against the cluck as California Highway Patrol officers scrambled to rescue nearly 20 chickens that ran through highway lanes near Los Angeles.

The CHP says the birds blocked a portion of Interstate 605 in the Norwalk area Tuesday morning after their cage fell from the back of a truck.

The agency tweeted photos and video of the chickens in lanes and a motorcycle officer collecting them.

Officers managed to rescue 17 birds. Two died.

 

The driver transporting the chickens was unaware that the birds fell off the truck and did not stop.
