Rooster Hangs Out at Gus's - A Fried Chicken Restaurant

No one knows where he came from, no one knows why he's there.

Sounds like the setup to a PETA video to me, yet everyday this little rooster makes his way down the street and hangs out at Gus's Fried Chicken in Memphis, Tennessee. This first started three months ago, when someone noticed him walking down the street, then crossing the street (with traffic!) and settling on the lawn of the local restaurant. If he doesn't cross the street he'll hang out underneath a sign or in the brush and trees, reportedly poking his head out if someone calls to him. They've been trying to round him up and get him into a shelter before he gets hurt, but efforts have failed.

Quite the mystery...why on earth would a chicken hang out at a chicken restaurant? Serious and non-serious answers are welcome!

0_0 That rooster has some serious nerves of steel! He's probably a local hero among the other chickens nearby. Hopefully they can get him to a safe shelter or something before he gets hurt though.
On a side note, I wouldn't be able to eat at that place...I'd feel terribly guilty picking up some fried chicken if he was there. <_<;
