Power had to be shut down on the Chicago Blue Line, as a rooster was spotted on the tracks...apparently trapped. After the rescue it was learned that the bird had a broken wing and couple not move.

Here's the mystery, how? How did the rooster make it's way onto the Chicago Blue Line? That is for sure an odd place for a rooster to be. Maybe out on some rural train tracks, but in the city like this...something smells foul, or fowl. My guess is that someone was transporting the bird and it got loose. Sounds like some criminal activity to me. I wonder if it is any of these folks?

Say cheese, Illinois!

There is some good news and bad news with the ending of this story. So here's the good news, the bird was rescued and we have video:

The bad news, because of the seriousness of the broken wing injury...they had to put the bird down. They shut down the Blue Line in Chicago, this officer rescued a rooster, and then they had to turn out the bird's lights...Well that stinks.

The whole "cat in a tree" rescue got a little bit more "Chicago" with this one. Well done officer. Seriously a police officers job is NEVER done.
