Southern Minnesota Police Department Reunites Lost ‘Log’ With Its Owner
About once a week I see a post from a Southern Minnesota police department, from just about everyone in our area, seeking the public's help in reuniting a lost item or pet with its owner. Sometimes it's serious things like dogs or keys, other times it is tongue in cheek like a bag of pot or a backpack full of drugs. One Southern Minnesota police department took the lost item to a whole new level with a lost log post, and it got people's attention.
Minnesota Lake, a small southern Minnesota community of fewer than 700 people that spans both Blue Earth and Faribault Counties, recently posted about a lost log that was wanting to be reunited with its owner after it was found in the middle of a street. The internet came to the rescue, sort of, and that post was shared more than 790 times, or more times than the town has people!
Has anyone lost their pet log? It is blocking Main St and HWY 22. After many intense minutes of negotiations, it refuses to move and I am stumped. If this is your log, it will be cold and rainy all night and I am sure it wants to go home.
The good news is that the lost log was reunited with its owner, it is unclear if the owner was cited for littering or simply was allowed to pick the log/stump back up and get it to where it was going.
The lost log post reminded me of this Ren and Stimpy short, simply because it is big, heavy, and wood.
