What began as a prank ended with a sort of chain-saw massacre

CHARLESTON, Ore. - It turns out the fate of Charlie the Tuna of Charleston, Ore., was sorry indeed. The 8-foot Monterey cypress sculpture that used to greet visitors to the coastal fishing town was filleted by two young men who stole it as a prank and then, panicked they would be found out, took chain saws to it.

Yes and I was just reading they had a funeral of sorts for him too. More about it here The World Link - Homepage until tomorrows news comes out.

The good news is that someone has agreed to make a new Charlie Tuna.
