Reporter wrangles chickens from highway

PHOENIX, Arizona (KPNX/NBC News) – Just call him the chicken whisperer.

Chris Williams, a reporter with NBC affiliate KPNX in Phoenix, Arizona helped highway patrol officers rescue two chickens off a busy highway near Mesa Tuesday.

The fowl were spotted after a chicken coup fell from a truck onto the highway. Their owner, possibly unaware, kept driving.

After watching the officers fail to capture the chickens, Williams stepped in and managed to grab the birds, which were taken to a nearby petting zoo. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
