Cops Look for Missing Massive Billboard Cow
CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) — A full-size fiberglass cow was swiped from a Chick-fil-A billboard overlooking an interstate in eastern Virginia.
"It's kind of funny," said Mark Baldwin, a spokesman for Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A Inc. "But it's still a crime."
Tuesday, workers for Adams Outdoor Advertising noticed that one of two black-and-white cows had vanished from the 50-foot-high billboard along Interstate 464 in Chesapeake. It's the first time Chick-fil-A has lost a local cow, though about a dozen have been stolen in other parts of the country.
Authorities have been notified. The cows cost $3,200, which makes stealing them a felony.
Keith Krause of Adams says he can't figure out how someone stole the 500-pound cow.
But Krause joked about a possible suspect, since the Chick-fil-A billboards often have cows painting a self-serving "Eat Chikin" message.
"Could this be a case of fowl play?" he asked.
