(CBS/AP) YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio - A western Ohio restaurant is trying to help a patron get his pet chicken back after it was allegedly stolen from the establishment just over a week ago.

The bird was in a backpack at the time.

Peach's Bar and Grill in Yellow Springs has offered a $100 reward for the safe return of the pet named "Falcon," with no questions asked. It says a customer tucked the live chicken into his backpack when he came in to watch a band perform Jan. 5. But he says the sack with his chicken was stolen.

The Dayton Daily News reports that the customer said the chicken was his traveling companion.
