GLENDALE (AP) — A black chicken who spent two months dodging cars, coyotes and captors at a busy Glendale intersection is a sitting duck no more. Berna Arnold and her 8-year-old son said they used fishing nets to catch the elusive hen and move her to their Simi Valley home, where she is living with a horse, a bearded dragon, lizards and three other chickens.

Pasadena Humane Society animal control officers tried at least seven times in the last two months to catch the bird, which they considered a traffic hazard. A spokeswoman said the hen always flew into the trees or ran into traffic and officers would have to back off.

Witnesses named the bird Lucky.
