Long Island animals that cheated death

Several chickens were seen wandering through Plainview in

Several chickens were seen wandering through Plainview in June 2016, stopping traffic and waking residents with their early morning crowing. Animal rights group Long Island Orchestrating for Nature used pole nets and drop traps to catch seven of the chickens on July 10 and 11 and will send them to Tamerlaine Farm, an animal sanctuary in New Jersey. | Here's the story (Credit: Lori Krotz)
