ASSAILANT WAS A `CHICK,' BUT SHE WASN'T FIT TO BE FRIED

No clucking around. A woman dressed as a chicken tried to throw a pie in Kenny Rogers' face during a concert in Elkhorn, Wis., but was wrestled to the ground.

The woman and a companion told police they were animal rights advocates unhappy with the country singer's plans to open a roasted chicken franchise. Rogers is a partner in Kenny Rogers Roasters, a chain of 165 restaurants in 31 states and five foreign countries.The incident occurred during a Rogers concert Friday at the Walworth County Fair. Rogers' bodyguards wrestled the two women to the ground as they tried to climb on the stage.
