It still remains unclarified as to who swiped the boulder and returned it again, and unexplained as to how it was removed and returned. Photos show the boulder is fairly close to a paved highway. Comments have been made to suggest it could have been done with a backhoe and trailer or a Bobcat, although nothing has been said about whether or not any equipment tracks have been found.

One comment said it got the name "Wizard Rock" because it supposedly resembles a wizard's hat. Somebody must've been chewing on some peyote buttons to come up with that. There has also been mention that this isn't the first boulder to have been removed from this particular National Forest. Two other incidents over the last four months involved boulders weighing 750 to 2000 pounds. It has also been mentioned that it's illegal to remove minerals from a National Forest without a permit. Doing so could result in a $5000 fine or a six-month jail sentence.

FLASH!!! THIS JUST IN...
A suspicious person of interest had been spotted lurking around the area. If you see this scoundrel, report it right away, so that no other innocent boulders can be abducted in such a dastardly manner.

I would think someone would've seen such equipment around. Moving a rock that size would require some pretty heavy equipment, not only to lift it, but to transport it as well. No word about anyone seeing such activity though. There's been some talk about equipment being around the area. Not sure if any disturbance or tracks were found where the rock is located. Apparently, this isn't the first time a rock has disappeared from the general area. Maybe the rock just decided to roll around for a couple of weeks to visit friends, then returned back home during the night after all the fuss? If the rock is so special, why don't they put a metal fence around it to keep it from wandering away? Since it's out in the wilds, it could be dangerous.

Good grief. I don't even know what to think of that.
