As far as the safety of children go, we should go with whatever works, right? At a preschool in New Zealand, that means the job of street crossing guard is filled by a hen named Henry.
The policing poultry is named Henry, and according to The Washington Post, she’s being used as a sentry for Newstead Country Preschool located near a farm in Newstead, New Zealand. Farm owner (and school principal) Tracy Trigg outfits Henry with a fluorescent safety vest, then sets her out to wander the parking lot. Because parents dropping off their kids know about Henry, they drive slowly and cautiously in the lot.
