A tractor trailer accident on I-84 this morning resulted in hundreds of chickens falling off the vehicle. After the crash, the animals were transported by PennDOT to the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter in Clarks Summit.

According to Assistant Director of Griffin Pond Animal Shelter Kate Andrews, 50 to 60 of the chickens either died before they were taken to the shelter or needed to be euthanized due to severe injuries upon there arrival at 10:30 a.m. There were 200 chickens that survived and the volunteers are currently working to provide them with feed, water, and tarps for shelter.

"It's the largest number of farm-type animals that has been transported to us in the 11 years that I have been here," Andrews said.
