PRINCETON, Nj. (CBS) — The owner of a shop in Princeton, New Jersey is asking for the people who stole his beloved stuffed big-horn sheep on Monday to bring it back.

Lindi has guarded the entrance of Landau’s on Nassau Street since the 1970s, when owner Robert Landau paid about $10,000 to have an award-winning ram stuffed and shipped from Iceland.

Landau says Lindi has no resale value and hopes his captors will just bring him back.

“He’s become a mascot for the business,” says Landau. “He’s not replaceable and we would like him to come home.”

This isn’t the first time Lindi has vanished.

“About 15 years ago, he was kidnapped by two students from the College of New Jersey,” Landau says. “That was a…we believe…a fraternity prank.”

Lindi (seen in above photo) is about three feet tall, 150 pounds, with large spiral horns and he’s mounted on a large wooden platform with wheels.
