CHICAGO — Whereas firefighters could have a popularity for coping with kittens in misery, personnel from the Chicago Fireplace Division put their abilities to the take a look at on Sunday to retrieve a pet hen caught on a window ledge.
A video posted to Twitter by person “ChiTownCheese” at about 5 p.m Sunday night confirmed a brightly coloured hen — which some commenters say might be a Macaw — stranded on a window ledge outdoors the second ground of the Motorola Constructing on South Michigan Avenue.
Fireplace Division officers stated Truck 1 was returning to the station after paramedics have been wanted downtown when an individual flagged down the crew. In keeping with CFD, the particular person stated the hen was a pet with clipped wings and due to this fact could not fly down by itself.
“The citizen requested for a ladder, and a crew member as a substitute used a pole to help getting the hen down,” officers stated.
Within the video, the hen slowly perches on prime of the fireman’s hook earlier than being lowered to avenue stage. The group of practically 30 folks cheered as soon as the pet was protected in a handler’s arms.
