Someone broke into a storage shed at a Folsom, Northern California Chick-fil-A franchise earlier this week, making off with three of their iconic cow mascot costumes. According to a report by NBC Bay Area, the franchise is now asking the public for their help. The fast food outlet posted on Facebook Tuesday to announce the theft last Sunday night and pleaded with their customers to help find the kidnapped cows. Reportedly James Daack, the hospitality director for the franchise store said they just want the costumes returned and that no questions will be asked.

Chick-fil-A hoping the costumes will hoof their way back

Saying they hope it was just a prank, Daack said they are reaching out in various ways, hoping the culprits will “come to their senses” and return the cows to them. Many commenters on the Facebook post referred to the theft as “beefnapping” and that by stealing the mascot costumes, the thieves were “rustling.”

Police in Folsom are investigating the beefy crime and Sgt. Andrew Bates said that with all the attention the media is giving the story, he is expecting the costumes to return home. Bates said it isn’t like anyone can dress up for Halloween in one of the cow costumes and get away with it.

Chick-fil-A is a fast food chain based in Georgia that specializes in chicken sandwiches.

The cow costumes appear in their advertising, where the crafty beasts urge people to “eat mor chikin.”

Chick-fil-A grants a wish to a six-year-old boy

In other Chick-fil-A related news, a branch of the fast food franchise in Texas gave a six-year-old, dietary-challenged boy a real treat. According to WFTV9, Christopher Cataldo has a rare condition known as Eosinophilic Esophagitis or EoE.

The condition triggers severe allergic reactions after eating many foods and Christopher is only allowed to eat seven basic seven. His diet is reportedly limited to grapes, apples, potatoes, plain rice, lemons, tomatoes, and bananas, not leaving much room for a tasty meal.

According to Christopher’s mother, Kellie, her son also suffers from Addison’s disease, has seizures and has a weakened immune system and cannot be exposed to crowds.

However, the boy is allowed to eat Chick-fil-A fries – in fact, he loves them – but normally the family can only visit the fast food store via the drive thru, due to his condition.

To cut a long story short Brad Munson, owner of a newly-opening Tomball franchise of Chick-fil-A, heard of Christopher’s plight and made a plan. Shortly before the new franchise opened on Thursday, Munson made Christopher honorary owner for the day. This gave the six-year-old the opportunity to cook up his very own fries, explore the playground area and even work in the drive-thru at the outlet. Now Christopher is hoping that one day he can open his own Chick-fil-A franchise.
