Barasti’s life-size gorilla ‘Gorgeous George’ has been stolen

We’ve dealt with enough gorilla-based drama these past few years.

When someone decided to steal Barasti Beach Club’s life-size gorilla statue ‘Gorgeous George’, they took to social media to start the #BringGeorgeHome campaign.

As you can probably tell, Barasti aren’t taking the whole ordeal too seriously. They believe that a few of the club’s patrons got a bit carried away and thought they’d take home a new friend.

“He was a key part of the tropical jungle created inside the Barasti summer tent.

“No questions will be asked as long as Gorgeous George comes back to Barasti to complete the jungle display for the remainder of summer.”

If you’ve got any info as to George’s whereabouts, contact Barasti via Facebook.
