Princeton’s Landmark Stuffed Ram Goes Missing

Police in Princeton are searching for a beloved resident who has gone missing — a 100-pound stuffed big horn sheep that has sat in front of a wool shop for decades.

Princeton Borough Police tell the Times of Trenton that Lindi, the mascot that had guarded the entrance to Landau’s family-owned wool shop for nearly 40 years, has been missing since Monday.

The Nassau Street landmark is a popular subject for tourist photos.

Store owner Robert Landau tells the newspaper he spent $10,000 in the 1970′s to ship the award-winning specimen from its native Iceland as a representative of the business Landau’s was doing with that country. Landau says he doubts there’s much resale value in the stuffed sheep.

Police suspect the theft could be the work of pranksters.
