Police in Canada recently received a very unusual case in the area. On Jan. 22, there was a report of a robbery at the Lionsheart Wholeness Center Resort in Lily Lake, north of Edmonton.
It turned out that a strange raid had been carried out in the dead of the night. Because it was not money stolen, but a huge bass measuring 3.6 meters long.
In the middle of the night, as the mercury on the thermometer dropped to minus 30 degrees, someone broke into the property and simply stole a stuffed polar bear.
Resort manager Wanda Rowe told local media that the thieves cut the cables that were connected to the fully erect giant located on the second floor balcony.
The polar bear, which weighs about 225 kilograms and is called “Harry,” left marks on the parquet as it was dragged across the floor. The robbers then took the giant down the stairs and out through the double front doors to a waiting car.
says Rowe St. Albert Gazette That there was very little traffic that night, and that the people who stayed the night were in other parts of the property.
– It must have been 100 percent planned, she says in a comment he posted BBC.

According to police, the resort was involved in a “similar incident” in August last year, when two stuffed raccoons were stolen from the property in connection with a burglary.
The value of the three animals was estimated at approximately 35,000 Canadian dollars, which is equivalent to just over 274,000 Norwegian kroner.

Police Constable Kelsey Davidge asked local residents to be vigilant in case thieves try to sell the polar bear online. Because as she herself says:
