The Walker Police Department in Louisiana warned citizens to watch out for a suspect that had been terrorizing bank customers all week and ignoring social distancing protocols.

The suspect in question? A chicken.

The Walker Police Department responded to a complaint of an aggressive chicken Friday. According to police, the chicken chased customers at the ATM and drive-thru and attempted to enter vehicles on several occasions. Although police arrived within minutes of receiving the complaint, the chicken had fled.

The police department had fun with the incident on Facebook, posting that it is looking for a reddish-tan chicken approximately 18 inches tall and weighing 6 to 8 pounds and that the chicken is wanted on charges of assault, attempted battery, attempted burglary, terrorizing and ignoring an order from the governor. As of Tuesday, the chicken remained at large.
