Why did the chicken cross the road? 2,000 birds make daring motorway escape

Around 3,000 daring chickens made a dash for freedom in China after the truck carrying them overturned, with 2,000 successfully escaping.

Traffic police landed at the scene not long after and attempted to gather all the birds back in their boxes.

The chickens' bid for freedom caused some disruptions, with authorities being forced to close a section of the motorway in the southwestern Guizhou province.

Around 900 chickens were re-captured, with the rest evading authorities.
