TAMPA, Fla. – Authorities in Tampa are on the lookout for a robotic gorilla dressed in Arizona Cardinals garb.
The owner of a Tampa vacuum store says surveillance video caught two women dragging the fake gorilla away from his business Wednesday. The gorilla, which is programed to wave at passers-by, is valued at $1,200.
Another motorized gorilla, which is wearing a Pittsburgh Steelers shirt, is still outside the vacuum store. The Steelers and the Cardinals will meet in the Super Bowl on Sunday in Tampa.
The store's owner has reported the theft to police, but said he thinks it was a prank.
