VIENNA (AP) — A tiny pony is back at its Austrian circus home more than a week after apparently being kidnapped by a woman who wanted to give her sick daughter a Christmas surprise.

Fridolin the pony, who is only about 2 feet (60 centimeters) tall, went missing from the Vienna Christmas Circus early last week. He was found near a Vienna bus stop Wednesday.

Circus director Adolf Lauenburger told the Austria Press Agency Thursday that a woman called the circus and told officials where to find the pony. She said her daughter wanted a circus pony and she'd taken him to fulfill the girl’s wishes for Christmas — but decided she couldn’t keep the animal.

Lauenburger wasn’t able to identify the woman. Police were looking into the matter.

People that dumb need to be locked up somewhere to keep them from harming innocent horses.

If it was for her sick daughter and she didn't have the means, then I don't blame her for stealing it. Even if misguided that seemed like good intentions. Times are hard and at least she had the decency of returning it. So I can't fault her at all really.
