East Machias Gorrilla-knapping "victim" found in V

Maine store's ape found in Vt.

A stolen mechanical gorilla that was a fixture outside a flea market store in Maine has been located two states away in Vermont.

Lowell Miller realized over the Labor Day weekend that his 8-foot-tall gorilla dubbed "Seemore" had been stolen from Sandy's Sales in East Machias. This week, Vermont State Police discovered Seemore in a corn field in Swanton after a video confession surfaced on Youtube.com.

The video shows the hooded abductor with a sock puppet on his hand first demanding ransom, then apologizing for causing a flap.

The video appeared in response to a video posted by the gorilla's creator, Ken Booth from the Gorilla Robot Factory in Akron, Ohio.

Um, wouldn't that be one state away? scratch

Anyway, in my hometown (far, far away) there was a big concrete rhino that was constantly being stolen from a storefront.

I think the admin(s) of this board should make a section called "Why the *bleep* is this news?" and file this under it.
