Police have issued an appeal for information as to why a chicken was seen crossing the road in Dundee.
Officers were called to East Marketgait in the city at 08:30 after reports of the bird “giving passing motorists cause for concern“.
As you can imagine, the chicken was tracked by police officers and taken to a police station, where the SSPCA was brought in to care for the fowl.
The force is working to track down the bird’s owner, and appealed for “any information” about the incident.
Social media reports suggested up to three uniformed officers were seen chasing the chicken.
No indication on whether or not they were able to answer, why exactly, the chicken crossed the road. I would suggest, the fowl was attempting to reach the other side, but that is still up for debate.
