TEMECULA, Calif., June 9 (UPI) -- Employees of a Temecula, Calif., McDonald's said they have captured a chicken that had terrorized the restaurant's drive-through lane for nearly four months.
The employees said the brave fowl would anger customers by blocking the drive-through lanes and bother employees by shedding feathers around the premises, the Riverside (Calif.) Press-Enterprise reported Monday.
Restaurant manager Chona Cauley said the chicken evaded numerous capture attempts, but was finally ensnared after it fell asleep atop a drive-through window.
"Normally, the chicken sleeps in the bushes," Cauley said.
Esmeralda Ruiz, an employee who helped capture the chicken, said she has adopted the animal as a pet.
"She's one of our family members now," Ruiz said.
