Someone stole a giant bronze hippo, and the owners want it back

(CNN)There’s a giant bronze hippopotamus missing in England.

The 1,500-pound, 6.5-foot cast bronze sculpture was reported stolen Friday, Kent police said in a news release. The hippo is believed to have been stolen on Wednesday when someone forced their way into Chilstone Garden Ornaments in Tunbridge Wells, police said. Chilstone was founded in 1953 and provides handmade garden ornaments and, according to the business’ Facebook page, has created “architectural stonework for some of the UK’s most distinguished clientèle for over 60 years.”
“We are so sad that someone has stolen our beautiful sculpture,” the business said in a Facebook post Saturday. “We love to show artwork as features in our garden and we are so disappointed that someone would take it.”
