Sgt. Anthony Egan performed a rather unusual duty last week: he rescued a rooster who seemed to not be able to cross the road.

Egan spotted the rooster at about 9am last Thursday wandering the streets near the 67th Precinct at Flatbush and Snyder Avenues in Brooklyn. Egan usually works in anti-crime patrol, but this duty seemed right up his alley.

Egan and his partner brought the bedraggled foul back to the station and place him in the kennel. Having once kept a pig named Willy, Egan took to the bird, gave him a name, “Justice,” and even considered bringing him home.

“I was going to take him home at first,” he explained. “But then I realized how much work it would be. And I don’t think my neighbors would’ve appreciated it.”

The Staten Island native instead got in touch with Farm Sanctuary, a non-profit organization that seeks to end abuse of farm animals, and has an animal shelter in Watkins Glen in upstate New York. Egan brought the rooster to the shelter, where he says he is doing fine.
