Cops Catch Loose Chicken With Oatmeal Creme Pie in Nashville

Playing Police Catch Loose Chicken With an Oatmeal Creme Pie in Nashville

No fowl play suspected.

When a chicken somehow got loose and blocked traffic in Nashville, authorities were called in.  As it turns out, they bit off more than they could chew.

The bird outran everyone — except its own sweet tooth.

According to UPI, cops chased the bird through the city’s downtown before Officer Frank Campbell was able to catch it using a Little Debbie snack. Not even the chicken could resist the lure of an oatmeal creme pie.

As for its punishment — the bird won’t end up on a plate. Instead Metro Animal Control is taking care of it until it can be handed off to an animal rescue group.
