The giant rhino is back

ST. PETERS, Mo. (AP) - September 28, 2012

It's a giant, inflatable rhinoceros that attracts attention along I-70 in eastern Missouri.

Someone swiped Big Rico from Michael's Flooring Outlet in the town of St. Peters.

But the deflated rhino was found in a park near the store.

It was folded up and left on a picnic table.

A local television station reports the 25-foot-long, 12-foot-tall rhino is back at its post outside the store.

A hole in Big Rico's leg was patched and it was re-inflated.
