Part of a Bellevue restaurant's mascot is missing. The owners are offering a reward for its return.

Sometime either Friday night or Saturday morning, someone stole the head off of the cow that sits in front of the Bellevue Chick-fil-A.

The restaurant is on Cornhusker just west of the Kennedy Freeway.

Today, a blue tarp has been placed over it. Owners don't know if the theft was a prank, or something more malicious.

"They probably think they just took a cow head -- but it's more than that," says Joseph Deall of Chick-fil-A. "This is something that our family is really attached to, the community is attached to. So to have somebody just take it like that is indescribable."

Deall says the cow is named Betsy for a reason. It's the name of the family's Bassett Hound who died a year on the date that the cow head was stolen.

The business is offering a $250 dollar reward for the return of the head.
