Lorax Statue Returned to Dr. Seuss Estate

Posted: Updated:

BOZEMAN- After missing for more than a year, a statue of the famous Dr. Seuss character, the Lorax, is returned to the late author's widow's home in San Diego.

Interestingly, information surrounding the $10,000 missing statue came to the Bozeman Police Department last week from a 22-year-old local man.

The mysterious man turned himself in to police, confessing he took the 300-lb. bronze statue from the Geisel estate in La Jolla, Calif., then dumped it in a ditch after feeling guilty.

Detective Robert Vanuka, with BPD, says the man also admitted knowledge to crimes committed in San Diego and Hawaii.

Vanuka says the man seems to have no motive for stealing the statue.

"After a night of poor judgment, decided to hop the fence and take the Lorax."
