WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) - Kim Lancaster’s drive to work took her 112 miles over sometimes-rough roads. When she reached her job site along the Columbia River in central Washington, she discovered she had inadvertently taken her rooster to work.

As an archaeologist for the Cascadia Conservation District, she walked the site at the Stemilt irrigation pond south of Wenatchee on Monday morning to make sure there were no disturbances to any potential cultural resources. Then she heard a rooster crow. Lancaster thought that was odd, since she’d worked at the site the whole previous week and heard no chickens.

In the parking area, she spotted a rooster that looked like hers. A call to her husband confirmed that Red the rooster was missing from home.

The Capital Press reports (https://is.gd/WzfUeM ) that Lancaster decided Red had roosted in the spare tire under the back of her vehicle. Until Lancaster next heads home, Red is bunking in a borrowed cage, eating grain from a sack intended for her horse and spending his nights in her car, parked in the back of her motel’s parking lot.
