Just as some wealthy people would board a plane to another country just to buy Ice-cream, so did some four robbers arm themselves with AK47 riffles and invaded a community only to steal one chicken.
The men allegedly attacked a home in Qumbu, a village in O.R.Tambo District Municipality in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa with AK-47s and shotguns in the early morning hours on Sunday.
The Sowetan reported that the four men showed up heavily armed to steal a single chicken.

The Eastern Cape police spokesperson Captain Dineo Koena is reported as saying that three under-aged men and a 23-year-old were taken into custody after the weapons were found in their possession.
He added that the suspects are set to appear in court on Friday.
