COLLIERVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Every day a colorful character visits a fried chicken restaurant outside Memphis and loudly announces his arrival -- with a crow.

Nobody seems to know where the red rooster came from, but The Commercial Appeal reported he first showed up about three months ago and has been a daily fixture ever since at Gus' Fried Chicken in Collierville.

He's been known to cross a busy street, but most often crows from a fenced field across the street from the restaurant.

Collierville Animal Services has been trying to catch him. Shelter manager John Robinson says he doesn't want the cocky fowl to meet an untimely end at the paws of a raccoon or other predator.

Robinson said of the bird that he fears no man -- or Gus.
