It doesn't matter. It got a ticket, anyway.

Jaywalking chicken ticketed

No fowl play suspected when $54 citation dismissed

A chicken that got a ticket for crossing the road has clawed his way out of it.

The $54 citation for impeding traffic was dismissed Friday after Linc and Helena Moore's attorney argued that the fowl was domesticated and could not be charged as livestock.

State law restricts livestock on highways, but not domestic animals.

The chicken was ticketed March 26 for impeding traffic after it wandered onto a road in Johannesburg, a rural mining community southeast of Ridgecrest.

You're missing the big issue here.

How's a chicken gonna raise 54 bucks? I mean, that's a lot of eggs to lay from one bird.

Stupid officers.

this is of course ridiculous. was it actually the chicken that was cited or the owners for letting it get out?

either way dumb - unless the cops know something we dont maybe it's somehow related to the goose that layed a golden egg! hahahaha
