Strange News: Horseback Riding Lesson Ends on Account of Raining Chicken

A teenager taking a horseback riding lesson in Virginia last week was lucky to be wearing a helmet, not because of a mishap of with the horse, but because of a chicken. WLTX-TV reports Cassie Bernard was galloping along when a piece of raw chicken flew from the sky and smashed into her helmet.

Jennifer Cording, the riding instructor, told WLTX it was the smallest of three hunks of raw chicken to fall, literally, from out of the clear blue.

Representatives from a nearby Tyson chicken plant insists the raw meat didn't come from its plant, and authorities are investigating whether or not the meat came from improperly composted dead chickens scooped up by seagulls and dropped mid-flight.
