TAYLORSVILLE, N.C. — 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.
Chief Deputy Tod Jones told the Hickory Daily Record (http://bit.ly/2l7Z6BF) the statue's base was found several miles away. Jones said the statue is valued at about $1,100.
Alexander County is near Hickory, about 60 miles north of Charlotte.
