GNP Company Workers Join in Wisconsin Chicken Roundup
GLENCOE, Wis. (AP) - Workers from the GNP Company joined a roundup after a poultry truck crashed in western Wisconsin, spilling live chickens onto the road.
The crash was reported just before 9 p.m. Monday in Glencoe, Wisconsin. Buffalo County deputies and emergency workers arrived to find a semi on its side. The sheriff's office says the semi was hauling a load of live chickens when the driver lost control around a corner and the truck tipped, blocking River Road.
The driver, a 41-year-old Mondovi man, was treated at the scene for minor injuries. The sheriff's office says speed appeared to be a factor, and the driver was cited.
Crews from St. Cloud, Minnesota-based GNP, which produces Gold'n Plump brand chicken, helped load the chickens onto another truck.
