Stolen giant inflatable cow from Arizona Chick-fil-A found in backyard

One lucky tipster is receiving a year’s supply of free Chick-fil-A after spotting a giant inflatable cow in a local backyard that had been stolen from a Tempe, Ariz. franchise owner.

On Saturday, a 350-pound inflatable cow—that stands 24-feet-tall when fully inflated-- was stolen after making an appearance at an Arizona State University football game.

To facilitate the cow’s swift return, Phil Thomas, who owns the Camelback Road location, offered up one year of free chicken sandwiches to anyone who could bring the giant cow back to its rightful location.

On Monday, a tipster spotted the cow in a nearby backyard and alerted authorities.

FOX 10 says that police arrived at the home and questioned the person living at the residence who claimed he bought the large inflatable item at a garage sale.

The cow has since been returned to the Chick-fil-A, and is reportedly in good condition. 

Thomas says he will follow through on his promise and plans to give the person who tipped off authorities a year’s worth of chicken meals. The lucky do-gooder has not been named but FoxNews.com has reached out to Chick-fil-A.

The cow mascot, which is the only one of its kind in Arizona, makes frequent appearances throughout the Tempe area.
