Meet the skateboarding rooster

Tony Chickenhawk, the skateboarding roosterA controversy is brewing in this Cascade foothill town involving a famous bird on four wheels. Hanna Dahlquist's pet rooster is one bird that's got game.

"He skateboards," says Hanna. "He thinks he can go faster when he's aerodynamic." In fact, the rooster rides so well, Hanna named him Tony Chickenhawk. "I named him after Tony Hawk because he is like a really famous skateboarder and my chicken skateboards," says Hanna.

Tony has won an award at the King County Fair and has even received some ink in the local paper in this community known for its love of animals.
