Police in California, have arrested a chicken for jaywalking and blocking traffic.
The brown chicken stopped traffic on San Francisco’s Bay Bridge by crossing in middle of the road.
Now, the chicken that was named Chip, is at the center of a custody battle. After the California Highway Patrol (CHP) posted photos of the chicken that was taken into custody, 3 people came forward to claim it.
The chicken was placed in the care of the Oakland Animal Shelter until police can determine who it belongs to.
Police said that the chicken did not have a tag or a chip and therefore, the owner will have to produce evidence, such as a photo, to prove that the animal belongs to them.
So far no one was able to show proof of ownership.
