Police from Kent, England are in search of a giant bronze hippopotamus. Yes, that's right.
The animal statue's home is on a lawn at a garden ornament business near Tunbridge Wells.
It weighs nearly three quarters of a ton, or around 1500 pounds.

As their post says, the hippo measures in at about two meters long which is the equivalent of around six and a half feet.
The hippo has been missing since Friday.
People can not figure out what could have happened to the bronze hippopotamus.
