My wife just sent me the best sheep picture I've ever seen in my entire life. Those of you that follow the Meat and Trophy Care Forum may know that my wife and my sheep were both reported stolen from the taxidermy shop they were in about six months ago. The taxi that had them skipped town, and one of his shops was burglarized. The most current intel I had was that they were in the burglarized shop when it was broken into, and they weren't there when I went looking for them. We jumped through hoops for months working with the troopers and posting reward offers. I searched online forums and sale boards over and over trying to find them, but to no avail. I already had a taxi in Montana lined up to try and make repro horns from the pictures just to try and have something to hang on the wall. Long story short, they turned up, my wife got a call, and she picked them up today...and she didn't even have to pay the reward. To the gentleman that handed them over, you just scored some major karma points...and no he didn't steal them in the first place. You couldn't beat the smile off my face with a baseball bat. My son wasn't even born yet the last time I saw those sheep.
To the many other people that are in the exact same boat trying to get their stuff back from this taxi just keep thinking positive. There may be a happy ending in this for you too.
