A man clutching a rubber chicken recently robbed a Tim Hortons at CrossIron Mills just north of Calgary in a case of what many people are calling "fowl play."

“Holding a rubber chicken.” Honestly, the world’s so crazy these days that this seems about right.— Maria Birmingham (@mkbirmingham) February 27, 2020
And this person felt that there were more pressing issues at stake than the crime itself.
I feel that the rubber chicken is the heart of the issue.— Leroy (@halifaxwhodat) February 27, 2020
Police have yet to catch the chicken bandit, although one person suggested that they try the nearest KFC.
