Alas, it's been hacked up for maybe 50 bucks in scrap

People will steal anything that isn't nailed down.

How are they last words? Did the guy die after saying them? Was he so heart broken he went mute? Where those words said by the giraffe before being stolen?

First they came for the confederate statues and I said nothing, then they came for the Abraham Lincoln statues and I said nothing, then they came for the Elk statues and I said nothing, and now they have come for the giraffes.

Scrap steel, as of 07/04/2020, is $101.00 a ton.

So...  if it was scrapped...  they got $8.34 for it.

If I bring it back, will I still have to face charges..?
Otherwise they can get it out of the river with a tug boat.

Did they say "Yoink" while stealing?

Or just for the lulz.  Seems to be all the rage nowadays.

Well that video was disappointing.    I was hoping for a pickup truck going down the road with a giraffe standing up in it's bed.

This sucks, it's a really cool brewery.  My kids like it when I go there because everything is in cash and they pay back the change in 50 cent and dollar coins. Lots of good, lower alcohol english style beers.

Could order a replacement, but it would be a pretty tall order.

Going out on a limb, I'd say alcohol was involved.

I go to this brewery all the time.  The nicest people in the world own it.  No trendy IPA or sours just low alcohol German or British pub beers.

Someone saw something..And odds are, the truck was stolen too..They need to...Stick their necks out...
and say something..You want a better society, you have to not accept petty crimes as being ok
because they are stigginit to someone with more of something than you have..

They require payment in full before beginning to work. Nobody wants to stick their neck out financially for that sort of project.

Anyone who thinks no one would steal a 13 foot metal giraffe has probably never thought about just how awesome a 13 foot metal giraffe is.

I wouldn't steal it, but I'd be happy to have a 13' metal giraffe statue show up, as long as I can get it up the stairs.
