That sounds so incredibly dangerous! A 9-foot chicken basically sounds like a Velociraptor!
Oh… wait… it's just a statue! Less terrifying, but still a crime!
Three young men in Putnam County, Florida, Darrin Edwards, 19, Tyler Jones, 21, and James Smith, 18, must've really wanted to ride a giant chicken, so they went onto Ben Smith's property to steal his!
Smith heard "screaming and hollering" outside his home, early one morning.
He went outside to find his giant chicken statue being dragged away by a pickup truck.
They dragged the statue down the road and one of them even hopped on top and rode the giant chicken. LOLz!
Then they unhooked the statue and drove off. They were later arrested for their crime.
A detective on the case said:
"The chicken sustained a broken leg, broken claw and there was extensive damage to one side."
The statue was worth about $2,300, so these young men are in a decent amount of trouble!
They're charged with theft and hopefully won't be playing with giant chickens anytime soon! Let's hope this is the last time they run "afowl" of the law. LOLz!
