Today's Most: $50,000 spent on chartered flight for chickens

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

TODAY'S MOST...Bizarre way to spend $50,000: An anonymous person spent $50,000 to fly a bunch of chickens across the country. The chartered airplane is flying from Northern California to upstate New York on Wednesday night. The flight costs $50,000. The cargo is twelve-hundred chickens! The donor, who is an animal lover, gave the money to an animal welfare organization to save the chickens from being euthanized. The chickens lived and "worked" on an egg farm, but were going to be killed because they no longer were used by the farm. Now, they'll live the rest of their lives un-caged in an animal sanctuary. 

TODAY'S MOST...Inspiring story of a wounded warrior: This is a wonderful story of a 24-year old who's a ball boy at this year's US Open tennis tournament. He was a medic who was seriously injured in Afghanistan, but fought through many medical issues and is now recovered. He says he's doing this to inspire other wounded warriors. When the tournament ends, he's going to go back to a military base to help teach a new crop of medics.

TODAY'S MOST...Interesting reason a man was thrown out of Universal in Florida: For wearing a t-shirt that said "police" on it. The man wearing the t-shirt got it as a gift from his brother, who is a police officer. Apparently nobody's allowed to wear shirts that say police unless he or she is a working officer. The man said he was in the process of buying a new shirt at the park, but then security became rude. He and his family left the park, and are not pleased.
