Freetown Police are hunting for a six-foot-tall rooster that was stolen from the front yard of a home in town.

Police say that the proud rooster was stolen sometime after eight o'clock on Sunday night.  While more than 17.5 million people were engrossed in Game of Thrones, police say these thieves heartlessly stole the rooster from the front yard.

You don't have to be a chicken to return the stolen rooster, because as of now the owners have no desire to press charges. They just want the rooster returned.

Police didn't share the specific address where the theft took place, although they are asking residents in the Dunham, Rebecca or Howland Roads area that have security cameras may have captured the thieves driving away.

No word on why anyone would want a six-foot rooster or how they think the rooster was stolen. It is so big it would most likely be difficult to fit into the interior of a car.

Christine Fox had an interesting theory: she says the main suspects could be any of the neighbors who might have been sick of looking at the rooster in the front yard.

Police say they are hoping that the theft of the rooster was just a harmless prank "and not some low life stealing it for themselves."
