CASTRO VALLEY, Calif. (KTVU) - A stolen giant metal chicken has apparently been found and authorities are working to return the bird to its Castro Valley home.
Someone made off with the nearly 8-foot lawn ornament, but a little after 8 p.m. KTVU's Henry Lee reported the colorful 50-pound faux fowl had been located.
Alameda County Sheriff's Department is trying to reunite the decoration, stolen from (where else?) Crow Canyon Road with the rightful owners.
