PORTLAND — Portland police were told there was a chicken — and it was attempting to cross the road.
In fact, the citizen who called the police non-emergency line 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 a crank.
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.”
