Chickens made bid for freedom when truck transporting them overturned on motorway

Hundreds of chickens escaped on Saturday when a truck loaded with thousands of fowls overturned on a motorway in China, releasing them on to the road and surrounding grassland.

Traffic police attempted to chase down hundreds of elusive chickens and place them back in their coops.

The runaway chickens forced police to close down a section of the motorway in the southwestern Guizhou province.

The truck was carrying coops containing a total of 3,000 chickens, of which 900 escaped. The driver of the truck said that the vehicle swerved after he tried to brake whilst driving in dense fog.
