PALATKA, Fla. —
Three men in north Florida have been charged with the theft of a giant purple chicken statue.
The Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/150E5cI ) reports the men took the 9-foot, 600-pound aluminum chicken from a home in Putnam County on Tuesday. They hooked it to a Chevrolet truck and dragged it a mile down the road. The owner of the bird told deputies he saw one of the thieves mount the bird and ride it.
