Police in Oregon get call for chicken crossing road; cops unable to determine its intent

I’m definitely bringing this story up in the Hibiki no Kai English class on Sunday!

PORTLAND, Ore. – Police in Oregon were told there was a chicken — and it was attempting to cross the road.

In fact, the citizen who called the Portland Police Department non-emergency line on Monday evening reported that the chicken’s efforts to cross a road in a north Portland neighborhood were bringing traffic nearly to a standstill.

He assured the dispatcher he was not joking.

The dispatcher chuckled — and asked a clarifying question.

“It’s just the one chicken?”

The caller said yes.

Sgt. Pete Simpson says responding officers were unable to locate the chicken.

And so, he notes, police “were unable to determine the chicken’s intent.”
