A fellow Bucktown resident named Gene made the community aware of a mystery & then solved it.
He posted a picture of a dead bird on the sidewalk. He assumed it was a chicken, but a neighbor corrected him – apparently it’s a pheasant.
He reviewed video and saw a neighbor dealing with the bird carcass last night:
After a full investigation, it appears the chicken or pheasant of whatever it is escaped from that bird slaughterhouse on Armitage – the one where you can go in and pick out a live bird and they slaughter it and chop it up for you to take home and cook. Place has been there forever.
So the chicken made a run for it, but a hawk spotted it and swooped in for the kill. But the hawk mishandled his dinner and dropped it on the hood of a car. The car owner saw it on his hood and kicked the dead bird across the street.
