Marion Fernandez, identified by her passport as 29-year-old Austrian citizen Marion Hohlrieder, announced the reward through a Facebook post yesterday (Feb 20).

Peep Peep was stolen from a coop in front of her home in Soi Kuan Yang, Patong, where she kept two chickens, some time between 5pm to 7pm on Saturday (Feb 19), Ms Fernandez said.

Peep Peep, a Chinese Silkie chicken, is easily identified by his white “silkie” feathers and red face, she said.

Peep Peep is about one year old. Ms Fernandez bought him from a person at Bang Tao Beach for B150. Now he is worth about B3,000 to B4,000, she said.

“After he disappeared, I have been trying to find him. I have asked the neighbours, but no one has seen him. I have asked to see the CCTV from the homeowner, but it’s unavailable,” she added.

Ms Fernandez has an emotional connection with Peep Peep. “Since he has been missing, I’m sad and I cry,” she said.

“If you find him, bring him back to me safely please,” she said.

“There will be a reward of B10,000 for the safe return of this silkie chicken,” she added.

People were urged to contact Ms Fernandez by calling 064-4707691.

Meanwhile, at 10am today (Feb 21), officer Lt Likhit Sangkhara of the Patong Police along with Maj Boonyarit Inthakarn and Maj Thawan Diewcharat from the Phuket Tourist Police arrived to question Ms Fernandez in the hope of finding her chicken.

 Except the  horses are housed in a rural zone on 4 rai of land.  They don't bother anyone, either.  In fact, the farmer neighbor loves the free fertilizer and together we've turned 8 rai of clay into highly productive pasture.

Important news right there, very interesting article

christysweet, posting her usual hatred, I see. I wonder what she'd write if something happened to one of her horses - and someone did the same!

How was she able to keep this  bird outdoors  in a municipal area? It's against code. It's male so likely it annoyed someone. This type make an especially annoying  noise almost constantly. I suggest if she gets it back to keep it in her house.- if she can stand it.  Ska-- REEEEECH all day -and all night.

Hope she finds her beloved pet. Any pet; regardless of their species is a part of family and their loss will hurt. To some peep peeps who don’t seem to understand the concept of love and loss; if you’re getting upset about somebody feeling sorrow over a lost pet, you need to take a good hard look at your priorities, evaluate your life and ask yourself how tf you sank so low.

Wow.That's exactly the level of news where this "news outlet "stands right now.As low as it can get.

'Since he is missing I am sad and I cry'- some peep peeps really need to get a life and worry about important things. What's next- a Gofundme account? Surprised PN wasted time with this fluff. I supposed if whe was less photogenic we would never have been informed of this heinous crime.
