Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road? To Fly In A Glider Of Course

I’ll be honest, I have no clue why this rooster flew in a glider.  But the video is somehow mesmerizing and I couldn’t stop watching it.  And it’s not as scary as barely hanging on in a hang glider. A guy really took his pet bird for a glider ride in the alps of Austria.

It doesn’t appear that the bird enjoyed the flight though. A big chunky fellow like that makes a better Chicken Nugget than an aviator.  In one scene you can see the bird shake its head as if it were confused. It was probably supremely disorienting to think it a standing still but still feel the forces of flight.

In the end, it doesn’t appear that the bird was harmed in any way, just a little disoriented.  All’s well that ends well, I guess.  As of press time, there is no word if PETA has scheduled a protest against the Austrian flight school yet.
