Heating technician David Skeels discovered a statue of a blue ox stolen nearly three years ago as he made a service call at an Oregon State University fraternity house.
Skeels was working on a boiler in the basement of the Theta Chi house when he stumbled upon the statue in a storage room.
Blue Ox RV Park’s mascot, appropriately named “Babe,” was stolen on Jan. 8, 2015.
The painted fiberglass statue had been at the Albany, Oregon park’s entrance since it opened about 20 years ago.
Skeels had actually helped move the statue a couple of days before it disappeared.
Theta Chi fraternity's flag displays the Greek letters Theta and Chi, which spell “OX.” Members returned the ox to its rightful place.
