PETALING JAYA: An attempt to fly the coop went awry for a plucky rooster when its leg got caught midway through its great escape.
Fortunately, the episode ended without incident thanks to the Damansara Fire and Rescue Department, which received a call from a member of the public around 3pm on Sunday.
When the officers arrived, they found the rooster perched precariously at a narrow gap near a window on the third storey of a shop lot in SEA Park.
It is believed that the chicken had been stuck for about half an hour.
A crowd of onlookers flocked to the building to witness the rescue, causing some traffic congestion at the street below.
The Bomba team was able to free the rooster’s leg and returned it to its owner unharmed.
The owner, who works nearby, was advised to take better care of his live poultry.
It is uncertain how the chicken got to the ledge, but it was unlikely to have been due to “fowl” play.
Images of the rescue were posted on the Selangor Fire and Rescue Department’s Facebook page, where netizens praised firemen for handling the situation so well.
