Apparently, a suspect really likes chicken — to the point of stealing, according to the Braselton Police Department.
A tractor-trailer truck driver told police that he parked his vehicle at the Pilot Travel Center on Ga. Hwy. 53.
Sometime after midnight, a suspect entered his sealed trailer and took several boxes of chicken, according to an incident report.
The stolen boxes were valued at $1,300.
For complete crime and court coverage, see the August 19 issue of The Jackson Herald.
When I first read this story I thought you have to be very hard up to steal chicken. Then I thought about it and said no you can sell a box of chicken anywhere it has no serial numbers and can not be traced.
Then I thought why wasn't the trailer locked? The story said the trailer was sealed. That means a plastic seal tag you can just pull it off.

I was thinking they were live chickens and it was probably a hippy college student who didn't like the way the chickens were being treated. I have to confess, when I see a truckload of live chickens I feel a little sorry for those poor animals, too.
One time I was coming home from work and found dead chickens on the road. Like, one every half a mile for 5 or 6 miles. It was really upsetting.
No, I'm not the one who committed this crime. But I do sympathize a bit if they were live chickens.

Vicki: Stop eating chicken. That will help. I myself, will continue. I love the Colonel.
