The chicken that tied up traffic on the Bay Bridge yesterday morning has been caught and delivered to Oakland Animal Services, Bay City News reports

The chicken was apparently apprehended by the California Highway Patrol around 10:00 a.m. yesterday. It was first taken to the Berkeley Animal Services shelter before being transferred to Oakland. 

Tiana Scott, the manager of the Oakland shelter, told the Bay City News, "We do have the chicken in our custody and a potential owner has called us. It looks very healthy. It’s walking around and talking a lot. It’s a vibrant chicken, well fleshed."

If no one comes forward to claim ownership of the chicken, it may be available for adoption.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
