“My neighbor said that my chicken trespassed onto her property,” Tefft said. It just so happened to be the yard of a neighbor she says she's had problems with for a number of years. Police cited Tefft for failing to restrain her chicken, so she decided to fight that ticket in court.
"I'm confused as to why my chicken didn't get any kind of warnings before I got a ticket," Tefft said. When Tefft decided to fight the ticket in court, she decided to take Grace the chicken along with her. Her only hurdle was getting it past security, so she registered her chicken as a service animal. With Grace security in a pet carrier she made it through security without a problem.
