TAYLORSVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Where do you hide a 1,000-pound chicken?
That’s what sheriff’s deputies in Alexander County, North Carolina, are trying to figure out as they search for the concrete statue that disappeared from a farm west of Taylorsville over the weekend.
While the chicken may be heavy, it’s only 3 feet tall.
Deputies think the statue was taken sometime between 8 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. Sunday from the driveway of the farm.
