The age old question, why did the chicken cross the road? Well in this case, to get to Ohio.

On Monday night, John Dooley was inside the Exxon Mobile Gas Station off the West Pike when he was approached by a man who asked him to help remove a live animal from under his van.

"So I walk out, I looked and I didn’t see it there for a minute and then he showed me where it was at and there was a live chicken stuck under his car in the frame," said Dooley.

Dooley then called the Sheriff’s Office for assistance. They were able to safely rescue the chicken who later hatched an egg.

"I didn’t know what to say I was shocked, I thought kind of animal would be under the car, because they said they came all the way from Missouri and they kept hearing noises but couldn’t find it," he said.

Both the chicken and egg were given to his brother to keep as pets on his farm.
