    Jaywalking chicken ticketed

    No fowl play suspected when $54 citation dismissed



    RIDGECREST, California (AP) -- 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.

    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."

    Sheriff's officials said the ticket had nothing to do with the Moores' complaints.
    "I've never understood the term "women and children" as if their lives are somewhat more important than men."

    Until science can unlock the mystery of the chicken mind, this will be an issue for all of eternity.

    True. Hopefully there's a 7 figure government grant out there for some worthy researcher to ponder the complexities.
