20 tons of chicken poop hits I-70 in Colorado


The story begins, “… on I-70 westbound at the C-470 off-ramp just before 8 a.m. on 8/27/20. It appears that a tractor-trailer blew a tire and rolled over. Fortunately, no one is hurt and no other cars were involved.”

But, what makes this incident on Interstate 70 in Golden, Colorado Thursday worthy of note is what the truck was hauling at the time of the incident: 20 tons of chicken poop.

Yes, 20 tons.

Truly, that oughtn’t be too surprising given that chickens poop between 12 and 15 times a day, according to the folks at the Pet Educate website.
