When police put out a call to reunite lost pets with their owners, they are usually trying to find owners of dogs and cats. In one recent case in Ledyard, police were trying to find the owner of a monitor lizard. http://www.nbcconnecticut.com/news/local/Police-Shoot-Monitor-Lizard-in-Ledyard-221185011.html
However, South Windsor Police Animal Control has a more fowl missing pet case.
Animal control is trying to find the owners of a brown chicken found Monday evening near the intersection of Foster Street Extension and Ellington Road, which is Route74.
The chicken is cooped up at the Tyler Regional Animal Shelter on Sullivan Avenue.
Anyone with information about the bird’s owner or why it crossed the road should call South Windsor Police Animal Control officers at 860-648-6239.
