This is a story that caught my attention this morning.
A Romanian man who stole seven chickens has been jailed for three and a half years. The man, who is 51, was apprehended whilst returning to Romania after a four year absence, apparently he was recognised by his international arrest warrant. The man was very suprised to find himself on Interpol’s most wanted list.
I’m no expert on Romania or it’s law, but if these chickens are a form of currency he may have comitted an offence similar to robbing a bank.
UK news source Ananova have slightly more details, and not as much humour.
I wonder what he did with the chickens?
