A Grand Prairie police officer’s body camera was rolling during a one-of-a-kind rescue early in the morning on July 30.
Police received a call in regards to a chicken stuck on top of the garage door, near the motor chain, at a family’s home. The chicken had been walking in the street before making its way into the garage.
Animal control wasn’t available at the time of the call, so Officer Lance Lybrand got the call.
He put on some gloves borrowed from the garage, got on a step stool and grabbed the chicken with his hands to return it to safety.

Of course, you don’t just rescue a chicken and NOT get a photo of the moment… The department posted the photo of Lybrand with the chicken to its Twitter page.
