Why did the chicken cross the road? Police in Portland, Oregon, have no idea.

A non-emergency call on Monday afternoon reported that a chicken was crossing Highway 30 in the Portland neighborhood of Linnton. The caller said the foul was a traffic hazard.

Responding officers weren't able to track down the chicken. However, Portland Police note, "While 'chicken crossing road' jokes have been told for more than a century, animals in the roadway creating traffic hazards are no laughing matter."
