Authorities: Stolen Giant Fiberglass Steer Found

DALBO (WCCO/AP) — A stolen giant fiberglass steer that has been featured in State Fair daily parades for the past five years has been found.

The 12-foot-long, 8-foot-tall molded steer was found abandoned in a parking lot of the Dairy Concepts Plant in Dalbo, Minn. Monday morning. It was taken from St. Paul’s Como neighborhood in early August.

Norb Anderson, the owner of the larger-than-life Angus named Blackie, said the Blackie was stolen this summer and he had hoped someone would have brought him back by now.

Anderson recently sold the Wisconsin-based FAST Corporation, which stands for Fiberglass Animals, Shapes and Trademarks. He said he’s had fiberglass animals stolen before, but they have always come back.
