HOUSTON -

A Houston restaurant's 300-pound mascot was stolen.

Someone took the beloved red rooster that sat outside of Arturo Boada Cuisine, 6510 Del Monte at South Voss Road.

Restaurant officials said the heavy metal bird was hijacked about a month ago.

The manager said security video shows four men loading the bird into the back of a pickup truck, but so far, no arrests have been made.

The rooster sat outside the restaurant for years.
