Six pink flamingos missing; owners want them back

Date: May 5, 2005
Publication: Chronicle, The (Centralia, WA)

A second "ransom" note was left at a Centralia home on Wednesday demanding chocolate for the return of a half dozen pink flamingo yard ornaments stolen days earlier. The 30-something couple, who live on the 200 block of Yew Street, say they have no idea who might have taken the birds from in front of their house

Tom Singer's small flock of pink plastic flamingos returned to his Centralia home as mysteriously as they disappeared last week. The five -- not six as earlier reported -- lawn ornaments were on the porch of his Yew Street home in a cardboard box when he awoke Friday morning

Thanks for this post: flamingos can circulate, like Karma, I guess! Good to know.

Flamingos migrate. Domestic ones don't migrate far, seldom beyond nearby neighborhoods or dumpsters.

A few years ago there was a" flock" of flamigo thefts in Peterborough, Ontario area - near the site of the Bolerama at Emily Prov. Park.
A group called the Society Against Tacky Lawn Ornaments claimed responsibilty. I kid you not! They haven't made the provincial press releases lately so maybe they were effective and there are no more flamigoes to steal there OR they moved to WA.l
