Runners on the Juneau-Douglas High School cross country team rescued a chicken last night from Gold Creek at Cope Park.
Students spotted the chicken during practice and saw that it was stuck.
Runners Riley Moser and Madeline Handley worked together to get the chicken out.
“One kid lowered my daughter into the water down there in Gold Creek to save the chicken and yanked my daughter and the chicken back up,” says Catherine Reardon, Handley’s mother.
The chicken is described as large and white with black around its neck and on its tail.
Another runner on the cross country team Soren Thompson took the chicken temporarily to his residence where his family has a coop.
JDHS cross country team is anxious to return the chicken to its owner. For more information on how to claim the chicken, call 463-5110.
