Gross!

A disgusting slew of chicken meat and bones spilled across Bond Street in Boerum Hill on Friday morning. The trail of raw chicken flesh lined the street between Wyckoff and Bergen streets, according to one local who stumbled upon the scene around 9:15 a.m.

“I saw just a massive pile of glistening meat and bones,” said Cullen Camic.

The meat must have hit the road recently, because there was no fowl smell of rot, but the sound of trucks driving over the piles of bird carcasses was seared into Camic’s memory.

“It was just like crunching and squishy,” he said. “It was intense.”

Camic’s girlfriend Jean Cooney took a video of the street and sent it to her friend Sara Vilkomerson, who uploaded it to Twitter, where it quickly went viral.

“Does anyone know what the hell kind of chicken massacre happened in Boerum Hill?” Vilkomerson tweeted with the disgusting footage.

Cleaning trucks from the city’s Department of Sanitation soon arrived and scooped up the dreck, before street sweeping vehicles brushed the street, according to Camic.

A spokeswoman for the department said the sweepers came to the scene around 10 a.m. and that a truck with water will clean the street some time today.

“A DSNY mechanical broom addressed the condition at 10:00 a.m. A flusher (truck with water) is on the way to address any remaining street residue,” said Belinda Mager, in an emailed statement.

The cause of the cluck-up is still under investigation, Mager said.

Once again the liberal racist spews its bigotry when it feels safe to do so under other user names. It still fools no one.

I love being an anonymous piece of S H I T online and then have the audacity to cry when others don't use their real name. I'm proud to be a racist coward.
