Police Looking for Missing Billboard Cow

We Pass a billboard like this all the time and I think those cows are so cute, the kids love them...

CHESAPEAKE, Va. - 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.
