Strange Sports Video: Chicken Invades Soccer Pitch – Blackburn vs. Wigan, UK

Strange things seem to happen at soccer games all the time, usually involving players taking dives. Or hooligan throwing flares onto the field.

But this time, it was something even more unusual:  a chicken ran out onto the field. Nope, not a prank rubber chicken, an actual live chicken, wearing a Blackburn soccer club flag during a game against bitter rival Wigan in the United Kingdom.

Not sure what the chicken symbolized, but eventually the goal keeper trapped him under some netting and a stadium security guard took him away. Not sure if any charges will be pressed against the chicken or if his discipline will be handled by one of the team’s sponsors, KFC.
