Giant stolen Ikea moose re-emerges after New Year’s prank
The disappearance of a giant rocking-moose from the Ikea store in Zwolle during the early hours of Monday morning, was the work of New Year's association De Oliebol from Vledder in Drenthe. The stolen moose reemerged in the association's home town on New Year's eve. The association needed the 3 meters long and 2 meters high moose - a large version of a well known and widely sold rocking horse in the shape of a moose - for their annual New Year's stunt, De Stentor reports. This year's stunt was aimed at celebrating the many births in their town in 2015. The special moose was shown off to all visitors of the town's New Year's celebration on New Year's Eve. On New Year's Day it was taken on tour through the village so that everyone could see it. The association will contact the Ikea in Zwolle on Friday to arrange for the giant moose's safe return. It is unclear how they managed to sneak it away from the well guarded store in the first place.
