Sunnyside Resort’s moose head was returned yesterday. Placer County Sheriff’s Detective Sergent David Hunt says the decorative head went missing the night of January twenty-second.
The head has hung in the front lobby for years before it was taken between midnight and 7 in the morning. The Placer County Sheriffs Department searched local pawn shops and taxidermists, as well as online for the moose, to no avail. Finally, Sergent Hunt says they started a media blitz in the hopes that someone had seen the head. It was returned by a local citizen, who said he found it the morning after the theft and took it home with him.
An antler had been broken off during the theft.
The suspects are still at large.
