RAONE COUNTY, WV (WSAZ/CNN) - A car carrying chickens and ammunition caused major traffic headaches on Interstate 79 in West Virginia.

Police say the driver with Pennsylvania tags lost control while trying to get a dog out of the SUV.

More than 30 chickens were in the car at the time, many of which ended up on the side of the road.

Bomb teams were dispatched with several items being taken for more testing at a lab.

Along with some guns, the team later found that crude explosive devices were made from fireworks.
