A man has been fined after he allegedly stole a chicken from a supermarket in Dongara, Western Australia, because he was “hungry and hungover”.
Sergeant Grant Rosman said the 43-year-old Three Springs man is alleged to have eaten the chicken in the back of an aisle at the town's IGA.
He then left the remains behind some items on a shelf.
The theft was captured on CCTV and the staff alerted police.
Police from Three Springs arrested the 43-year-old on Friday and issued him with a $500 stealing infringement notice.
