Notes & Transcripts

If you ask them, police in Portland, Oregon say they know it’s an old joke, but they really don’t know why the chicken crossed the road either. When they received a call, officers were dispatched to check on a report of a chicken crossing a local highway during rush-hour. The caller said the bird was causing a traffic hazard, so police went to remove it. Later, they released a statement saying they were unable to locate the bird and that animals in a roadway were no laughing matter. A spokesman said officers regularly tend to duck crossings, and have rescued ducklings form storm drains. He said this was the first time they had received a serious call about a chicken trying to cross the road. Officers will remain on a lookout for the bird he said, and added, for the time being, officers were unable to determine the chicken’s intent.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
