CLEVELAND-- A sheep statue stolen from in front of a business on St. Clair Avenue has been returned.


The sheep in front of DayGlo Color before it was stolen.

Surveillance video from DayGlo Color Corporation on Sunday showed a man in a Joe Haden Browns jersey pull the sculpture from its base and walked away. It happened between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. after Cleveland beat the 49ers at First Energy Stadium.

DayGlo said the sheep was found back on its pedestal Wednesday morning. The company alerted Cleveland police of its return and brought the statue indoors until it can be properly mounted.

The sheep is one of 17 statues installed in May around the city of Cleveland to commemorate the Chinese Year of the Sheep. Local businesses sponsor the works of art with proceeds going to local education and culture programs.

The sheep is valued at about $2,500.
