Playing Chicken

The relative peace and quiet of the new fire station in Elkin, N.C., was shattered when a tractor-trailer rig collided with a minivan in the road out front. The semi, which was loaded with 3,600 live chickens, rolled onto its side and slid into the firehouse, smashing a column and the doors of two apparatus bays. The firetrucks parked inside narrowly escaped damage. There were no human injuries, but a number of chickens were killed. (RC/Elkin Tribune) ...Naturally, fowl play is suspected.
