Pamela Horowitz just wants her skateboarding chimp back.
Horowitz made a public appeal at Tuesday night's City Council meeting for the return of a statue of a skateboarding chimpanzee that was stolen Feb. 8 from her North Laguna property.
"This is an appeal to the good citizens of Laguna and anyone else who might hear this to be on the lookout for a statue that was stolen from my front porch, right by the front door," Horowitz said.
She said the nearly life-sized statue might show up on EBay or Craigslist, or at art fairs.
"It probably took two fairly strong, presumably guys, to lift it onto a truck." Horowitz said. "If it was just a prank, I would dearly love it to be returned — no questions asked. If it was stolen to be sold, I would like to apprehend the perpetrator."
Horowitz acquired the statue in Bangkok. The artist is unknown.
