Odd Stories From The World
JOHANNESBURG - Even a chicken, which has for months avoided becoming road kill on a Johannesburg intersection, can't escape the crime-ridden city's crooks.

The semi-wild chicken had dodged intersection traffic for months, but was lured across the road to her death by a trail of breadcrumbs laid out by a friendly traffic-light newspaper seller. But it was trap!
The newspaper seller was being held at knifepoint by two hungry crooks intent on a chicken meal.
"The streetwise chicken met her match," said The Star.
