The New England Institute of Technology was in the news recently. It wasn’t for any acknowledgement of our students, faculty, staff, or curriculum.
No, this was something much less… serious.
On Monday, May 6 police were called to the East Greenwich campus of the college to investigate a hen being dropped off in the parking lot. According to East Greenwich Patch, a car drove into the parking lot, popped the trunk, and the hen jumped out. The individual who called police was unable to obtain the license plate number of the car in question.
When animal control arrived on the scene, they caught the hen in an animal carrier and brought it to the police station while making arrangements for the hen to be seen at North Kingstown Animal Hospital. Before the hen was able to be transported to the animal hospital for further examination – it laid an egg.
The Patch has not reported who took possession of the egg after the incident.
