Remember the story of Pete the Pelican, who was stolen from the rooftop of Hawkes Nest News for the second time late last year?
To the delight of Hugo Elstermann, owner of Hawkes Nest News, he was returned to his home over the Australia Day long weekend!
Just before 11pm on 24 January Pete the Pelican returned to the store. It was left at the front door with a note which simply said “SORRY”
Pete appears to be in good condition and will be returned to his pride of place during the week.
To the person who returned it we say thank you for your change of heart.
Pete went missing in August last year.
Here’s a photo of where was he put.
All’s well that ends well 🙂
