Should Fowl Play Be Fined?

Ticket Against Jaywalking Chicken Tossed
May 29, 10:15 AM (ET)

RIDGECREST, Calif. (AP) - A chicken that got a ticket for crossing the road has clawed his way out of it. The $54 citation for impeding traffic was dismissed Friday after Linc and Helena Moore's attorney argued that the fowl was domesticated and could not be charged as livestock.

State law restricts livestock on highways, but not domestic animals.

The chicken was ticketed March 26 for impeding traffic after it wandered onto a road in Johannesburg, a rural mining community southeast of Ridgecrest.

The Moores said they got the ticket because they were among several people who complained that deputies have done little to curb noisy off-road vehicle riders.

"For the last two and a half years, no one has been able to stop the kids riding their bikes in the middle of the road or the neighbors' dogs running around our neighborhood," Linc Moore said. "But when our chicken escaped and crossed the road once it became a huge issue."

Sheriff's officials said the ticket had nothing to do with the Moores' complaints.

WTF? I'm not sure if i understand this article.

They actually fined a chicken and not its owners? And the chicken got a lawyer?!

That's California for you.

Linc and Helena Moore were the owners of the chicken I believe, and got out of the fine using their lawyer. It's pretty ridiculous they gave a fine for a jaywalking chicken though.
