Unless you're Joe Pesci from the movie Casino, you've probably never found anything as strange in the trunk of your vehicle as the Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office found in a patrol car this week. 

As the sheriff's office wrote on Facebook: "We can't make this stuff up!"

Behold, the weirdest thing you'll read all day. 

"A chicken was located in the trunk of a Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office patrol vehicle. The chicken is believed to have unknowingly gotten into the trunk of the squad when the deputy assisted an individual with unlocking a car at a residence with chickens, on August 2nd. The chicken was in the squad trunk for approximately five days and was found alive when the deputy was retrieving equipment. The chicken was removed from the trunk, given water and care, and brought back to its owner. This was one tough chicken and one very surprised deputy with a big mess in the trunk of the squad!"

It's a miracle that the chicken didn't die. 

According to backyardchickencoops.com, chickens need a constant supply of food and water, and without it they're at risk of starvation, dehydration and possibly death. 

This chicken went five days without food or water and survived.

That is one clucky animal.
