Fowl Play: Police Reunite Stolen Rooster With Overjoyed Owner in Florida

An officer with the Oviedo Police Department returned a beloved rooster named Fred to his owner on February 2, after he was taken in Oviedo, Florida, earlier that day.

Officer Massip’s body cam footage captured the moment Fred was reunited with his owner, a woman identified in a police report as Emma Reichert.

According to the report, Fred was picked up by a man identified as Adrian Cruz. Cruz told police he took the chicken because he was concerned it was going to get run over. Cruz handed Fred over and Reichert decided to drop the charges for theft, police said. Credit: Oviedo Police Department via Storyful
