Authorities in the San Francisco Bay area town of Novato are flapping about the theft of a park statue -- a 700-pound bronze pelican.
The statue, titled "Omay" -- a Miwok Indian word for pelican -- apparently was stolen over the weekend from a park near Scottsdale Pond.
The statue was commissioned by the city council in 2007 at a cost of $27,500. It is 9 feet tall with a 10-foot wingspan.
Novato police say it may have been stolen for its metal but the motive isn't clear yet. They're offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the thieves.
