Steal a Beaver, Guard a Beaver

Michael Ledford, 18, was convicted of stealing a 250 pound beaver statue in Xenia, Ohio.  In response, the judge ordered Ledford to guard 25 similar beaver statues on the weekends until they are auctioned on October 15, 2005.  While Ledford guards the beavers, police will guard Ledford.  In addition to his beaver-guard duty, Ledford also had to partially reimburse the city for the cost of adding tracking devices to the beaver statues, as nine others have been vandalized or stolen while on display.
