New Orleans, La. – The day got off to a "fowl" start for Causeway police as officers confronted the age old question of why the chicken crossed the road.

In this case, officers were led on a wild chicken chase by five feathered suspects. It took some doing but they were able to corral the birds and get four of them into the back of a police cruiser.

In the confusion, the fifth chicken apparently made a winged break for it over bridge railing. That chicken's fate is unknown. The birds were in a crate that fell off a flatbed trailer.

The incident did not shut down the bridge.
