Lupe was stolen from the Odessy Business Park at Baseline Road and Country Club in Mesa, Arizona on November 11, 2015 at 5:30 p.m., by a woman with dark hair driving a red truck.

There is a reward offered for information about the woman who was seen chasing Lupe and four other chickens that evening.
