ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) -- There's a reward for cattle rustling in Anderson.

Naturally, since the cow was taken from a Chik-fil-A restaurant, the reward is chicken. A lot of chicken.

The restaurant is offering free Chik-fil-A sandwiches for a year if someone returns the cow.

Someone took the topiary cow from the restaurant on Clemson Boulevard on Monday night. That's greenery growing over a metal frame. Only the "feet" were left.

The restaurant says the cow is worth about $3,500. It had been at the restaurant since August.
