Imagine sinking $500 into a homemade chicken coop with the hopes of raising a little chicken family only to have it stolen from you in the middle of the night.
A Lee County couple had that very thing happen to them on Thursday morning.
They were actually looking to sell the coop as they only had a limited amount of space for it. They were going to sell it for $375.
It was around 3 AM when their dogs started barking and looking towards the backyard. The husband grabbed his pistol and investigated but noticed nothing suspicious.
It wasn’t until around 10 AM that they realized that the coop was gone.
It was a very large coop and could have been a team job.
