1001 - The chicken gets out of the ticket

On May 9, I noted a story about a chicken getting a ticket for jaywalking. The chicken had her day in court, and beat the rap. Her owners contended that the fowl was domesticated, not livestock; while California law restricts livestock on highways, it does not restrict domestic animals. The $54 ticket was dismissed.

Guess it wasn't illegal for the chicken to cross the road after all.

The only surprising thing about this, er, chickens--t case is that it was prosecuted at all, though it seems clear that, as often is the case with extremely stupid lawsuits, that a local feud having nothing to do with the dispute in the lawsuite was involved.
