Missing statue of Buffalo Bills` Thurman Thomas found in Canada - ESPN
"ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- A missing half-ton chain-saw carving of former
Buffalo Bills running back Thurman Thomas is apparently in Canada.
Orchard Park police say an Ontario man called the organization that
owns the carving Tuesday. He said he and some friends rescued it after
seeing people trying to burn it.
The 8½-foot statue disappeared from a parking lot across from Ralph
Wilson stadium sometime after Sunday`s Bills game against the Browns.
The statue was unveiled before Sunday`s game and is one of dozens
made from trees toppled in a 2006 snowstorm. Proceeds from a
fundraising project called Carvings for a Cause go toward new trees.
Carvings for a Cause founder Therese Forton-Barnes says she hasn`t
seen the statue yet and doesn`t know whether it`s damaged."
