Ashland University: Jake the Eagle is missing no more


ASHLAND, Ohio (WJW) – Ashland University said Friday that Jake the Eagle, its cast-iron statue, is missing no more.

The university posted on its Facebook page, “Thanks to the Ashland PD for alerting us that he was found off Cleveland Ave. He’s a little worse for the wear, but we’ll have him back together and in the nest soon.”

The eagle statue was reported stolen last Friday.

Jake is one of more than two dozen eagles across the campus, and his home is in front of Jacobs Hall. When Jake went missing, Ashland University said he was worth about $2,500, but he’s very rich in sentimental value.

He’s been on campus since the late 1950s.

Ashland University used the hashtag #ReturntheBird on its social pages to bring Jake home.
