This sign for Woodlawn Regional Park at Boundary Dam sits along Saskatchewan Highway #47 between Estevan and the Noonan, North Dakota border crossing.

Back in 2016 the hand-carved pelican was stolen and the incident was reported in the local newspaper.  The police had no leads and there were no witnesses to the crime.  It seemed like the culprit had gotten away with it.

Then a request was made in the newspaper to return the pelican, no questions asked.  As if my magic the pelican was soon returned to it's perch on top of the sign, much to the delight of passersby.  And no questions were asked.
