OTTAWA, Nov. 15 (UPI) -- The owner of an art studio in Canada is seeking the return of a concrete raven statue that was stolen from the property.
Christopher Griffin Art Studio shared a photo of a similar statue and the broken chain that once held the crow statue in place.
"Sometime Saturday night, thieves cut the chain to my [4-foot] high, 125 [pound], concrete raven sculpture and took her away," Griffin wrote. "Sad to see her gone - hope she is ok and in a good home."
Griffin told the Ottawa Citizen his signature was etched into the base of the statue, which was worth an estimated $5,000.
He said the thieves likely used chain cutters to cut the statue loose and carried it away in a truck. He said he wasn't optimistic about the prospects of finding it.
"I don't have much faith that it'll turn up, but I guess [a police report] should be my next course of action," he said.
Griffin believes the thieves would likely keep the statue hidden indoors or in a backyard due to its recognizable nature and requested that anyone with information regarding its whereabouts contact him on his website.
