PD in New York teases one if its officers on social media after rescuing chicken from shed fire


We’re not sure if it was Cheryl’s she-shed, but nonetheless, the Ossining Police Department had some jokes for one of its officers on social media yesterday.

After Officer McGovern captured the rescue of a chicken from a shed fire on his body camera, the department released the video, with some commentary.

“Somewhere around the first day of field training some salty cop usually hits you with, ‘Kid, you wouldn’t believe what goes on around here if I told you.’ Saturday, Officer McGovern has his “Ah Ha” moment, the department wrote.

“Dispatched to a reported fire, he found himself faced with a fully involved shed, adjacent to a residential property. He smartly removed a couple of propane tanks before they could compound the danger and swiftly went on to rescue… a chicken. Now, it’s not that we don’t love chickens. They’re just fine and certainly deserve our assistance. It’s just that, if you ever wanted to get a hard time from your coworkers, be a hero… to a chicken,” they continued.

They even roasted him with an award; “congratulations, Officer McGovern. Since the “Lifesaving Award” doesn’t specifically prohibit the subject of your bravery from being poultry, we will put you in for an award because, well, this is a story that’s too good to let go of.”

Even the comments on the post were funny, with one person writing, “chicks dig the uniform.”
