Thieves Steal 200-Pound, Hot-Pink Bulldog In West Hollywood

@tedlieu, Twitter
West Hollywood is searching for a lost dog: a 10-foot-tall, 200-pound, hot-pink bulldog, to be more specific. The Los Angeles Times reports the dog sculpture was stationed along Santa Monica Boulevard as part of an art installation put in place in advance of last Sunday's gay pride parade. But it went missing on Monday, perhaps as a prank, or because someone wanted the dog in their personal collection.

The LA Times says William Sweetlove, the Belgian artist behind the bubblegum-colored canine, is asking the dognappers to come forward, and will even reward anyone who leads him to the missing pink pooch with a frog statue worth $1,600. There's no word on what the lost pink dog is worth, perhaps to discourage others from stealing the artist's five other statues lining the boulevard. Meanwhile, local police are reviewing video surveillance from nearby businesses to try and find the culprit(s).
