But an attempt to keep the chicken from ranging all over the neighborhood. They are notorious for that.

The chicken is doing fine and is actually quite friendly. At some point in her life has learned trust humans.

She will be transferred to a partner shelter to be adopted.

This is a prime example of why all chickens should be allowed to bear arms.

Hoe did the chicken survive with one leg tied to a tree? It's not like the hawk couldn't have just landed on the ground and took her out. That must be some tough ass chicken!
