A pub in downtown Calgary is hoping the public can help them find a beloved pig statue stolen from their establishment over the weekend.
Henry the Pig was taken from The Unicorn, located in the 200 block of 8 Avenue S.W., early Sunday morning.
The fibreglass statue is about two feet tall and four feet long.
The pignapping was caught on camera; surveillance footage appears to show a heavy-set man in shorts and a baseball cap sitting on Henry’s back, before picking him up and walking out the door.
A statement on the pub’s Facebook page describes Henry as a “good soul” who “only ever wanted to greet people as they came in the door.”
“You have kidnapped not just an employee, but a member of the Unicorn family.”
“We only want Henry back, no hard feelings, just bring our little porker home.”
Just two weeks ago, another Calgary eatery released surveillance footage of a man stealing two Japanese Maple trees from outside the establishment.
The trees, worth about $700 each, were taken from the Royale Brasserie on 17 Avenue by a man walking his dog.
Ryan Duguay, 31, was later arrested and charged.
