Police find pipe bomb stuffed inside chicken
SIMSBURY, Conn. - Authorities in Connecticut are wondering who stuffed a raw roasting chicken with a pipe bomb and left it on a roadside.

Simsbury police Capt. Matthew Catania says a motorist noticed the chicken Friday morning. He says the bomb was large enough to harm a person if it went off.

The road was closed while the Hartford Police Department's bomb squad came and blew up the chicken.

Nobody was injured. No arrests had been made Monday night.

    Honestly, I think at that point it's just a "chicken-bomb," not a "pipe-bomb stuffed in a chicken."

    Please notify the people at Webster's.
