The Pentagon, also known as the building that houses the United States Department of Defense, is a symbol of American military power across the world situated in Arlington, Virginia. Guarded 24/7 by the Pentagon Force Protection Agency along with elite military personnel that safeguards America’s military operations, you’d be sure no unauthorized personnel would get within its parameters.

Not until a chicken came along.

Officers of the Animal Welfare League of Arlington received a call around 7:00 AM on Monday from the Pentagon. The animal organization, who was quite surprised to receive a call from the government, picked up the phone and to their surprise, a chicken was found within the Pentagon premises! An intruder worth making fried chicken out of had amazingly made it inside one of the world’s most secure buildings.

Yup, no need for security clearances, firearms, or special weapons. All you needed were wings and a wobbly set of feet to get you right through the fence. The security personnel of the Pentagon wasn’t able to catch the chicken, so they employed the help of the Animal Welfare League of Arlington to catch the intruder. Luckily, Sergeant Cliff Ballena headed to the Pentagon and helped the security forces apprehend the chicken, who was hiding under a truck.

A bad motherclucker. This chicken actually made the Pentagon call for backup. That’s how bad this chicken was, evading the hot cooking oil of some restaurant it was supposed to go to, perhaps. I guess she just ran “afowl” after she heard the grizzly sound of the fryers of a famed Colonel in the fast-food industry.
