Traffic fowl-up: Chicken captured after causing traffic flap

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Authorities have captured a felonious chicken that fouled up rush-hour traffic on the Bay Bridge from Oakland to San Francisco.

The bird was snared Wednesday after the morning commute and put in a patrol car for a visit to a veterinarian.

The California Highway Patrol said the small, brown chicken had been reported running in the lanes of a toll plaza on the Bay Bridge.

The agency later posted a photo of the "felonious fowl" in custody on its Twitter account.

Meanwhile, a goose remained on the loose in San Jose after motorists headed northbound on Highway 101 reported seeing it on the shoulder of the busy road.

CHP spokesman Ross Lee said the goose flew off into a nearby golf course. Animal control was notified.
