After Big Bird was stolen from the Sesame Street Circus in Adelaide on Monday, he has finally been returned safe and sound.
He was found back at the circus at Bonython Park just before 5.00am (local time) on Wednesday.
Seven News journo Peter Caldicott tweeted that Big Bird has been found and “a witness saw two people running away from the scene.”

SA Police were called to Port Road after two males were spotted wearing dark clothing and carrying the assumed stolen costume.
The costume was dumped by an electricity box with a note in his beak: “We are so sorry!!! We had no idea what we were doing, or what our actions would cause.
“We were just having a rough time and were trying to cheer ourselves up.
“We had a great time with Mr Bird, he’s a great guy and no harm come to our friend. sorry to be such a big birden!
“Sincerely, THE BIG BIRD BANDITS (2 of us).”
Apparently, his feathers were a little ruffled, but he is still in decent shape after being missing for three days.
