What does this chicken know that had him running from police Monday night? It will remain a mystery for now, as the fowl managed to successfully avoid being captured during a foot chase in a South Texas Buc-ee’s parking lot.
Officer Curtis Land of the Freeport Police Department couldn’t help but laugh as he pursued the feathered suspect in a video posted to the department’s Facebook. “I ain’t chasing a chicken,” Land can be heard saying as the chicken picks up speed. “I want to know where the dang chicken came from.”
Although Texas has been named “the state in which you’re most likely to be killed by animals,” it’s safe to say this chase was of low-risk. Officers lost track of the bird near a Church’s Chicken restaurant down the road.
