RIDGECREST, Calif. - 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.

The Moores said they got the ticket because they were among several people who complained that deputies have done little to curb noisy off-road vehicle riders.

"For the last two and a half years, no one has been able to stop the kids riding their bikes in the middle of the road or the neighbors' dogs running around our neighborhood," Linc Moore said. "But when our chicken escaped and crossed the road once it became a huge issue."
I don't know why it crossed, but it didn't use the crosswalk.

But one question still remains unanswered: Why did the chicken cross the road?

I had no idea that animals could get their owners punished for jay-walking... Hell, I didn't even think they punished anybody for that.

I saw this yesterday and couldn't believe it. They actually got the ticket thrown out because the chicken was a "domesticated chicken" rather than a famr animal. :rolleyes:
