EAST MACHIAS, Maine — A stolen mechanical gorilla that was a fixture outside a flea market store in Maine has been located two states away in Vermont.
Lowell Miller realized over the Labor Day weekend that his 8-foot-tall gorilla dubbed "Seemore" had been stolen from Sandy's Sales in East Machias. This week, Vermont State Police discovered Seemore in a corn field after a video confession surfaced on Youtube.com.
The video shows the hooded abductor with a sock puppet on his hand first demanding ransom, then apologizing for causing a flap.
The video appeared in response to a video posted by the gorilla's creator, Ken Booth from the Gorilla Robot Factory in Akron, Ohio.
