GRAND ISLAND, Nebraska - The Central Nebraska Humane Society has their hands full with dozens of chickens seized from the car of a man accused of driving while intoxicated.
100 chickens were recovered from the back seat of a small SUV during the arrest, but half of them were already dead.
The director of the humane society says she's never seen anything like this.
"We're enjoying them. The public has cruised by and taken a look. We have actual eggs this morning a day later. And so we're just happy that we've got a facility that even though it's unique, that we were able to make a difference. they had a place to go,"
says Lauri Dethloff.
A family has come forward willing to take all 50 chickens. The humane society is waiting for approval from the county attorney before letting them go.
No word on if the driver owned the chickens or where they came from.
