  Chicken Thief
by Leipzig

The statue of the Chicken-Thief was created by H.J.Pagels. It is said that once upon a time a boy wanted to steal a chicken. He grabbed a chicken in a dark night and put it into his bag. On the run the "chicken" started to crow. People around heard this and caught the boy. While he was pilloried he could think about the slight difference between a chicken and a rooster!
Funny stroy, isn't it?
