An unidentified flying object spotted in Hawaii caught enough people's attention to get the Federal Aviation Administration involved.

Warren County Animal Control Officer Robbie Lagonera responded to the 911 call.

He was able to tackle one chicken and chase a second chicken and capture it with a net.

Officials say the chickens are safe and will remain at Warren County Animal Control for seven days and then be put up for adoption if the owners do not come forward.

No word on whether the chickens were angry about McDonald's plans to roll out new chicken sandwiches.
