Why did the Chicken Cross the Road? To Get to the Pentagon!


Animals almost never get into the Pentagon, but this chicken did. 

On February 2nd, 2022, a hen was seen wandering around a security area at the Pentagon in Washington D.C.

The hen was found early Monday morning near the US Department of Defense office and was found by the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, VA.

My classmate says, “That chicken must have been crazy!”

Officials did not disclose exactly where the red and brown hen was found, but they did say it was found by a security checkpoint. 

Chelsea Jones, a spokesperson for the organization that found the chicken says, “it’s also unclear where the chicken came from or how she got to the Pentagon”. 

The hen is a Rhode Island Red. The team named her “Henny Penny” after the chicken in Chicken Little that thinks the sky is falling. 

Henny Penny is being adopted by a staff member with a farm that will gladly house her.
