AWESOME: Kind police help confused chicken cross a busy road

Police in Dundee have rescued a chicken after it waited a very long time to cross one of the city’s  busy roads.

Motorists who witnessed the weird incident took to Twitter with posts on Friday, sharing their concerns after seeing the bird obey traffic rules.

A report from The Courier said the chicken waited for a chance to cross the busy road but unfortunately, it was during rush hour.

After the initial report was posted on Twitter, netizens thought it was another joke for the day but it turned up true, after the police confirmed it in a statement.

One Twitter user said: “Weird start to my day when there’s a chicken next to me waiting to cross the road in Dundee.(sic).”

Another described the scenes as “the funniest” they had ever seen.

Scotland police confirmed the rescue and have since issued a statement, which read: “Officers were in East Marketgait at 8.30am after reports of a chicken trying to cross the road and giving passing motorists cause for concern.

“The bird was traced safe and well and has been brought to our police station. The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA) has been contacted and will be attending to take care of the chicken until the owner is traced.”
