This week, PETA’s “Hell on Wheels” box truck was stolen in southeast Portland, and the organization is offering a reward for its return. PETA reports that the truck, which is covered with images of poultry in crates, was stolen in the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood on Monday night or Tuesday morning, July 3 or 4.
According to PETA, the truck was in Portland to honor the chickens slain last month when a semi-truck overturned on Interstate 5. The vehicle is a 2016 Ford E-350 Super Duty with the Virginia license plate number VHA5528, according to the description.
Did you know that two people were murdered in separate shootings early Wednesday morning, according to the Portland Police Bureau? On July 4, officers responding to a shooting call arrived in the 4400 block of Northeast 131st Place around 1 a.m., where they discovered a deceased individual:
Large decals on the cab read “Hell on Wheels” and depict a chef holding a dead chicken. A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered by PETA for information that results in the truck’s return.
Additionally, the organization stated it would provide a year’s supply of a variety of vegan chicken to informants whose reports lead to the recovery. PETA is requesting anybody who sees the truck to call the Portland Police Bureau at 503-823-0000.
