Wandering hen 'arrested' for breaching Pentagon security ring!

The Animal Welfare League of Arlington, Virginia, is keeping custody of the bird. They have named it Henny Penny, after the fowl in the fairy tale, 'The Sky is Falling.' Was this chicken carrying any electronic spy band? Where did it come from?

WASHINGTON, Feb 3: A wandering hen was caught sneaking into the high security Pentagon, US Department of Defence headquarters - the secure-most place in the United States which was ironically struck by Bin Laden terrorists with ease on 9/11 2001. Who knows! The loose hen was found Monday, the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, Virginia, tweeted. She has been named Henny Penny.

"Our officers have chosen the name Henny Penny for our #pentagonchicken, and she will be going to live at a local animal sanctuary very soon!," the post read. "Apparently, the answer to "why did the chicken cross the road" is to get to the Pentagon?! This chicken was caught sneaking around the security area at the Pentagon (we're not kidding) and our officers picked her up," it said.

The hen was taken into custody by one of the league’s employees. A spokesperson for the organization told anxious reporters that she will not reveal the details.

It is not known where the brown-feathered bird had come from nor did the organization identify the exact spot from where it was caught. But they said definitely the suspect fowl crossed the road which means it was in the courtyard and heading to any of the high-security blocks - left, right or front.

The Welfare people took the name from 'Henny-Penny', an English Fairy Tale which narrates the story of a hen that thought the sky is falling when a nut from a tree fell on its head, and soon enough rushed to the palace to apprise the king of what has happened, gathering on the way a 'convoy' of other fowls along. All the way they kept chanting, "The sky is falling! The sky is falling!" The fable has since spawned a massive amount of literature and films.
