An animal charity is searching for the owners of a chicken who flew the coop.

The Scottish SPCA was alerted after the bird was spotted straying at Lion Bank in Kirkintilloch at the weekend.

Welfare officers said the chicken had a telephone cable attached to its legs when it was found.

It is being cared for at the charity’s centre in Lanarkshire.

An SSPCA spokesperson said: “We want to reunite it with its owners – please help by sharing on Facebook.

“If it belongs to you please call our animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”
