In central Massachusetts, a farmer, Keith Kopley, said that 200 baby chicks were stolen from their pen!!
He believes that animal rights activists were behind the grand theft birds after he posted a pic of the birdies on Facebook.
Kopley said that the baby chickens were hatched in Pennsylvania and were delivered to him on Wednesday, March 13.
He put them in a sawdust-lined pen, set up two heat lamps and posted a pic of them all crowding around their food and water.
The next morning… they were gone!
He believes the theft wasn't about money because expensive power tools nearby were untouched and there was no evidence of a predator.
Police are investigating the matter!
Hopefully he gets his chicks back! Unless he was gonna kill them and make chicken nuggets.
Then maybe it's for the best…
