It took 20 minutes for police in Augusta, Maine to catch not a thief or a burglar, but a chicken that went loose.

Restaurant-goers of the Olive Garden restaurant got disturbed when a chicken ran amok its parking lot. First to spot the chicken and call the police were customers Susan Kimball and Bill Ryerson, who were eating lunch, Central Maine reported on Monday.

Kimball shared that the police first used a smelt net to catch the chicken. Afterwards, the police followed the chicken to an embankment, and then through Interstate 95 which had four lanes of traffic.

After the chase, the Augusta Maine Police Department posted a photo of the apprehended chicken on its Facebook page. The police department even humorously described the animal as having a “craving for soup, salad and breadsticks,” and “initially having the upper hand zigging when expected to zag” when police were trying to catch him.

FEATURED STORIES

No one has been identified as the owner of the chicken, as it is still in police custody as of this writing.

And what did Kimball have to say when she saw the police going after a chicken? “Three grown men running across the interstate was priceless,” she expressed. “They were going to save it. They were not going to give up.” Katrina Hallare/JB
