Owner of wayward chicken in San Francisco comes forward

Posted: Updated:

    
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The owner of a wayward chicken that fouled up traffic at the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Bridge last week is reclaiming his bird.
    
Ken Houston says he was taking two of his chickens to a nearby school garden last Wednesday, when he stopped at the Oakland Army Base, near the toll plaza, to check on a work project.
    
That's when he realized the cardboard box carrying his chickens in the back of his truck was empty.
    
One chicken was eventually captured by the California Highway Patrol, as well as news cameras and people with their cellphones at the ready. It has been staying at the Oakland Animal Services since last Wednesday. The second chicken was never found.
    
Houston had pictures and paperwork to prove ownership and the shelter confirmed he will pick up the chicken and take her to the school Tuesday.
