FREEPORT, Texas (AP) - A South Texas police officer has chased a chicken across a road but the fowl managed to flee.

Freeport police posted video online of Officer Curtis Land trying to catch the chicken Monday night.

A police statement says Land lost sight of the bird near a chicken restaurant. Land was seen using a pole with a loop on the end in the failed attempt to capture the chicken.

Police say the fate of the chicken wasn’t immediately known, after the bird dashed near some gas pumps and under a patrol vehicle before slipping away.

Authorities didn’t immediately say who’s believed to own the chicken.

Freeport is 60 miles south of Houston.
