Pony back with circus after Christmas kidnap

VIENNA — 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.
