Woman Cited After Her Chickens Cross The Road

Why did the chickens cross the road? The answer may come in a Pennsylvania courtroom.

State police this week cited a 23-year-old chicken farm proprietor for disorderly conduct after a neighbor reported seeing some of her fowl acting out the age-old riddle.

Troopers say the chickens went AWOL Tuesday and wound up in the 26-year-old Millersburg man's yard.

Anneliese Dorson faces up to 90 days in jail and up to a $300 fine if convicted of the summary offense.

She didn't immediately respond to a Facebook message. Her profile lists one of her occupations as ``at the chicken farm'' and features dozens of pictures of chickens.

It's unclear if her feathered friends will also face charges. Millersburg is about 25 miles north of Harrisburg.
