Winnie The Pooh plaque stolen in White River

*******News report from The Sault Star*******

Posted by the Sault Star  6/12/ 2010

The famous bronze plaque of Winnie The Pooh's relationship to White River is gone.

Ontario Provincial Police report that sometime after noon on Sunday, it was discovered that the bronze plague was forcibly removed from its wooden stand.

The plaque contains the history of Winnie the Pooh and the bear's relationship to White River.

The popular children's character was inspired by an orphaned bear cub which was purchased from a trapper at White River by Capt. harry Colebourn during World War 1.

Colebourn, a veterinarian, stopped in White River from Winnipeg and named the bear Winnie after his hometown, Winnipeg.

The bear became the troop's mascot for some time before being left at the London Zoo where author A.A. Milne and his son Christopher found the bear and inspired the stories.

White River celebrates the historical story annually and marked the significance with a plaque and statue.

Police say the total damage from the vandalism is estimated at about $1,000.
