Doug Aamoth warns us  today:
BE CAREFUL: There's a chicken loose in Boston. It's in Charlestown. A kid is feeding it.
In e-mail, he adds:
I don't know if it's a chicken or a rooster, but the little girl feeding it cracker bits on Sackville Street said it was a chicken and she seemed to have more control over the fiasco than anyone. I'm just happy to still be alive.
