12 chickens left in hot car in Kentucky Walmart parking lot

GEORGETOWN, Ky. — Police in Kentucky say 12 chickens were left in a hot car while their owners went shopping at Walmart.

One of the chickens died and the others were taken to a shelter after someone reported they'd been left in the car for about 30 minutes, according to WKYT-TV in Lexington.

Officers in Georgetown, where it happened, say the windows were left open just a crack.

The National Weather Service says the high temperature Wednesday in nearby Lexington was 94 degrees.

Georgetown Police say any charges against the owners will be up to Animal Control.

So... It would have been OK to leave them in an oven at 375 degrees (baste until golden) for an hour, but we can't leave them in a car at say, 120 degrees ?

I guess the same way you drive with 12 helium-filled balloons in there, bigbearzzz. People do most anything if you wait long enough.

Good questions and comments up there. New recipes, ovens, and driving. You just left the high-water mark with those. Thanx.

Once again it wouldnt have smelt bad at all if the chickens were thoroughly basted correctly. And is this a normal family outing for these people?! Load up the kids and head to Wally World?!

In the early 80s, after returning from an outing to see family in Rockwood with my dad and siblings, we found a note on our front door that said our horse had been taken by the Chattanooga Humane society, because it had gotten loose. So dad loaded all seven of us kids up in the station wagon and went to retrieve our horse. We wound up stuffing Suzie i(the horse) n the back seat, with her head sticking out one side and her tail the other, along with seven kids, we got her home safe and sound. True Story

Well now its time to say goodbye to Jed an all his kin, we would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in
