YAKIMA, Wash. (WKRC) - Why did the chicken cross the road? It's an age old question and the Yakima Police Department is on the case for an answer.

The police department posted photos of a stare down between Sergeant Ira Cavin and a chicken trying to cross a Yakima road.

Cavin says he was on patrol when he saw it roaming around on Washington Ave.

After having the chicken perform a field sobriety test Cavin says that's when he tried to solve the riddle.

"I'm not sure exactly why the chicken crossed the road," Sgt. Cavin said. "We're still investigating that part. I attempted to question the chicken but he wasn't really communicating with me."

Sgt. Cavin says the chicken disappeared into a yard after a short chase.
