Chickens cling to truck going 100 kph after falling out crate on Melbourne highway

A car passenger spotted several chickens clinging onto the side of a truck as the driver knowingly kept speeding down Western Ring Road in Melbourne.

According to the filmer, five of the chickens were still alive and "two were dead and one was taking its last breaths," after the container holding the chickens had fallen out after hitting a bump on June 17.

The filmer rolled down his window to notify the truck driver and got an alarmingly nonchalant reply saying, "I already know, I can't get up there, there's nothing I can do," before driving off.

According to a local news report, the filmer said another truck tried to get the driver's attention but received the same casual response.
