A local teen's horseback riding lesson ended abruptly after she was hit in the head by a foot-long hunk of raw chicken that fell out of a cloudless sky. Bernard, who was not injured, was wearing a riding helmet when the chicken hit her — protecting a rider from unidentified flying chicken parts is not the helmet's normal function, but it did the trick.

Cording called an early end to the lesson after the bizarre incident, which was followed within the next half hour by one of her steadiest horses "that never acts up" running away with a rider and another horse crashing through a jump.

The only possible explanations are that the chicken was dropped by a seagull or a UFO. I know which one I prefer.
