Sometime overnight last Saturday (May 8-9) thieves stole a wood carving of a bear from the front garden of a home in Brigden. This carving stands about 4 feet tall and weighs over 200lbs. As with any carving, this is a one of a kind item that has been created by a dedicated and talented carver.
Pictures of this bear carving have been circulated on social media and it can be found on the Sarnia Lambton Crime Stoppers website or Facebook page as well.
We’re not going into all the “bear” puns and jokes about this theft. That’s been done online all week. Now is the time to get serious and call Crime Stoppers if you’ve seen this bear carving show up somewhere or if you know who’s responsible for this theft.
