Errant Funky Chicken Stinks Up Chesterfield

If it had been a massive tofu spill, no one would be barfing. Just sayin'.

Excuse us while we hork demurely into our trash can...

Apparently a truck full of plastic-wrapped parts of dead chickens lost its load yesterday in west county, resulting in a horrible smell and a mystery. Motorists driving through the mess slimed Highway 40 for about a mile going eastbound near Timberlake Manor Parkway, officials told the Post-Dispatch.

Whoever was driving the truck that let the chickens cross the road (most violently!) apparently didn't stop, and the cameras monitoring the stretch of road weren't recording; they were only capturing a live feed.

So not only is there a lingering reek of pre-nuggets in the air, there's a chicken-spiller at large. If you have a lead on who the poultry perp might be, call the Chesterfield Police Department at (636) 537-3000.
