Uncooked Chicken Parts Falls From Sky, Hit Teen on Head

ACCOMAC, Va. — Virginia authorities are asking a vertical version of the question, why did the chicken cross the road?

Investigators are looking into a report that a piece of uncooked poultry fell from the sky and plunked a teenager on the head.

A state Department of Environmental Quality spokesman said Thursday the investigation will likely focus on the possibility the chicken was plucked from an improperly maintained compost pile.

Avian expert Bryan D. Watts tells The Daily Times the chicken part likely fell from the beak of a seagull.

Cassie Bernard was horseback riding Wednesday on Virginia’s Eastern Shore when the 1-foot piece of processed chicken hit her on the head. Other riders saw several more poultry parts fall from the sky. Bernard was wearing a helmet and was not injured.
