missing giraffe statue

It may sound like a tall tale, but police are investigating the theft of Stretch, a six-foot fibreglass giraffe statue from Gungahlin over the long weekend.

The statue was stolen from Kinder Haven Childcare and Early Education Centre sometime between Thursday 2 April and Tuesday 7 April.

ACT Policing has described the missing statue as “a giraffe, yellow in colour with brown spots and 1.8 metres tall.”

If you know Stretch’s whereabouts, contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

In all likelehood, it is probably being used as a bong right now in a townhouse somewhere.

Remember the days when people would steal garden gnomes and take them on an overseas trip before returning them, with photos of all the places they had been? I am hoping whoever took this giraffe is doing something similar, or possibly more creative. Good times…

Failing that I would start checking social media immediately. What thieving prankster could possibly resist taking photos of themselves with a 6 foot tall fibreglass giraffe?

Oh Oh ! I thought i saw some thing similar at the canberra zoo !
