Bowling Green State University Police are investigating the theft of a stuffed peregrine falcon from the Life Sciences building on campus.
University spokesman Dave Kielmeyer said this morning that the taxidermy specimen was taken sometime between Nov. 8 and Wednesday from the second floor of the building.
The preserved raptor, one of many taxidermy specimens located throughout the building, was situated in a glass case. Kielmeyer said that it appears someone tampered with the lock on the case.
The falcon is the only specimen missing.
Kielmeyer confirmed that the falcon is "certainly an older piece."
The specimens date to the early years of BGSU and faculty member Dr. Edwin Moseley.
