12 big legs on 18 wheels

Cargo thieves in Quebec didn’t waste much time dumping a truck and trailer they lifted while in transit to an Ontario zoo June 18. Just 25 miles from where the rig was stolen, the trailer was spotted. The truck was found a few miles down the road. Ron Petrie creatively reconstructed the scene in the Regina, Sask., Leader-Post: “Only when well down the road did [the thieves] feel safe to get out, check their hot cargo, and … WHOA! A caged cougar and two seriously deformed moose.” The actual cargo – a tiger and pair of camels, missing for two days — were reported OK.
