One of the great things about living in Rock Hill is the exciting local news in our daily paper the "Rock Hill Herald." A year or two ago, the story of the stolen wiener sign was the talk of the town. Today, everyone is talking about the stolen life sized, anatomically correct, goat statue. The story is on-line at the Herald. Christy Mullins reports that,
"Bob last was seen late on Jan. 6 wearing a red knit hat and scarf — which he had begun wearing Dec. 1 to keep warm."He had been the the victim of pranks in the past, but the usual suspects are claiming innocence.
Neighbors and Bob's owner, 53-year-old Madeline McDonald, had a running joke about moving the goat statue late in the night. He could be acrobatically dangling from the crape myrtle tree or tastefully straddling the wrought-iron bench, depending on who visited last.
But McDonald woke one day last week to find that her goat statue wasn't nuzzling the bushes, tail out, as he had been the night before, near a planter box in her front yard.
He wasn't tossed on a tree branch or masquerading near the sidewalk.
McDonald even looked on the roof, where neighbors had rumored they'd move Bob next. And just in case the wind had blown hard, McDonald looked in her back yard and neighbors' yards, too.
In case the wind had blown hard????
There is a reward for the return of the goat. Check out the article for more details.
