400-pound gorilla statue returned to Pa. woman

CARBONDALE, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman says a 400-pound gorilla statue was stolen from her home, used for target practice and then returned.

Patricia Rudalavage's beloved lava-rock statue Greystone was returned to her Scranton-area home on Thursday. The statue had bullet holes in its head, stomach and extremities but is still standing.

Rudalavage tells The Times-Tribune of Scranton that two men arrived with the statue in the back of a pickup truck, saying they'd found him about five miles away at a makeshift shooting range on a mountain. She says they refused the $100 reward for his return.

Rudalavage says her adored ape disappeared from outside her home on Monday.
