An innocent police post about safely rescuing a chicken from a street has gone viral for a very unexpected reason.

Police were called to Wilson Street in Sydney’s inner-west suburb of Newtown at 3pm on Sunday after a lone chicken was found crossing the road.

After a lot of trial and error by officers and members of the public, police said they were able to safely secure the timid bird and transport it to Sydney University Vet Hospital, where it is under care.

NSW Police shared the news on Facebook and wrote: ‘Look what Inner West Police Area Command found eggs-ploring the streets of Newtown!’

The post was accompanied by a photo of a male police officer wearing a mask and gloves in a vehicle, with the rescued chook held up in his hands.

The image has since gone viral after many users of the social media platform started to swoon over the police officer.

One user wrote: ‘Omg this police officer is gorgeous! Hello.’

Another said: ‘How old is the handsome policeman? Asking for a friend.’

‘I do not see a hot chook, all I see is a hot policeman,’ wrote a third.

Others were quick to comment on how they wish they had been in the position of the chicken in this instance.

‘Lucky old chook to be picked up by that cutie,’ a user said.

‘I think any good CHICK would cross the road to be held by this officer,’ wrote another.

While social media remains in a frenzy over the male officer, police are continuing investigations.

Anyone with information about the chicken or its owner is asked to contact University Veterinary Teaching Hospital Sydney.
