Lost Giraffe (Stuffed Toy) - Democrat

Post by mzagorski »

Posted this on the FB group, but figured I'd try here too. Hiked democrat with my 8yr old today... Heading back down to our car from Kite Lake TH a couple in a white SUV with Kansas plates gave us a ride the final mile to our car. After we got out and they drove off my daughter realized her stuffed giraffe (which she's had since she was born) was still in the car... Hoping I can track down the nice couple that gave us a ride and get the giraffe back. Lots of sentimental value... It's done a few 14'ers and is an international traveler :-D

So far no luck... Post has been shared in various hiking groups in KS... We do have a stunt double/backup giraffe but the original one has a bunch of sentimental value. SAR efforts continue :P

I feel for you. If my son would have lost Woofie his Siberian Husky stuffer it would have been disastrous. We had some close calls…left at a hotel in West Yellowstone, on a shelf at a Jo-Ann fabric store, at a movie theater, but he always survived. Sending positive vibes for recovery.

Will still pay shipping if the folks in Kansas ever find Giraffy and this thread. That apparently was a big favorite given this new attempt after so long. Good luck, dad!

Stuffed animals aren’t just for kids. I’d die if I lost Sebastian who has been on every adventure I’ve been on the last few years. Do you have a picture of the giraffe? What’s his name? It’s been a couple months since his disappearance. What has happened since?
