Vehicle-butting Wyo. sheep dies at park
LANDER, Wyo. (AP) — A bighorn sheep named Bam Bam because of his habit of butting vehicles at a Wyoming park has died with his horns, likely of natural causes.
Bam Bam became a local celebrity when he began showing up near the park’s main road in 2007 and allowed people to pet him.
He earned the name Bam Bam because he liked to butt vehicles.
Fearing for the sheep’s and visitors’ safety, park managers moved Bam Bam to an enclosed facility in 2009.
Stolen giant cookie sculpture recovered
BERLIN (AP) — German police have recovered a cookie sculpture that may have been stolen by someone impersonating the Cookie Monster.
Spokeswoman Jacobe Heers says the 44 pound gilded sculpture was found Tuesday morning outside a university. It was hanging from the neck of a horse sculpture with a red ribbon.
The century-old cookie was reported stolen last month from the office of a bakery company in Hannover.
A local newspaper later received a letter demanding cookies be delivered to children at a hospital. The paper also received a picture of someone dressed like Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster holding what appeared to be the stolen cookie.
The Bahlsen company promised a reward of 52,000 packets of cookies for a charitable cause if their emblem turned up.
No suspect has been apprehended.
