Eagle Theft

Received my Old Abe News yesterday.
I was surprised to learn of so many eagles stolen this year.
Listed is Harry Klines eagle stolen the week of March 4th.
May 26-27, a 4 foot eagle stolen from Waring, TX Volunteer Fire Dept.
June 9-10, an eagle stolen from a Case Family Dealership.
June 8-10 an eagle stolen from a car dealership.
There was no mention of Tom Graverson's eagle which was stolen just a few weeks ago.

If whoever is stealing these eagles gets caught, maybe it would be appropriate to have them tarred and feathered and chained to a Case eagle in the middle of the town square for a few days.

I know that kind of common sense justice is lost in todays world, but what can we do to deter the loss of eagles? Are they serial numbered?
Would it make any difference if they were?
I once thought there should be an owners registry to publicly keep track of them, but theres to many ways for a theif to get around that by simply removing serial numbers and repainting. Worst of all, a registry just tells the theif who has one and where to go pick it up. No different than telling the government how many guns you have and where you keep them. Not gonna happeen.

So any ideas out there?

Dad's (Tom Graverson, dctom) Old Abe is safe. He now resides in Iowa. We did have things stolen, wheel weights for the D and various other items, but his eagle.

Lisa, I'm sorry and embarrassed for spreading mis-information. I'm also glad to know Old Abe is safe and sound.
I don't know where I picked up on the idea he was gone. Must be cob webs in the old attic again. Now where'd I leave my glasses? HuH? What were we talking about?

No problem, dad"s barn and shed were broken into at least 3 times and many items were taken. Unfortunately we had not yet photographed everything. I am sure the big "D" pulling weights, the suitcase weights, the combine gas tank and the manifolds that we knew had been taken, were scrapped. At the time, whomever, even stole the Direct TV dish off the roof of the house. Old Abe is fine and enjoying his new nest in Iowa. Lisa

Are idots stealing them for scrap iron and breaking into pieces? It would be a crying shame if this were true but would not surprise me.

Back in 1968 when they closed the Case branch in Fargo, somebody stole the eagle off the roof of the branch.

It was found a couple years ago in an old garage in a town about 50 miles from Fargo. No clue who had stolen it.

We have a retired CASE Dealer friend about 25 miles from us who had their Eagle stolen off a pedistal in their yard. About 15 years ago. It had just been re-painted.

Today's Featured Article - Two-Brush Generators - by Chris Pratt. Whether for product liability or because the aftermarket parts and labor business is lucrative, this concept is disturbingly prevalent. Fortunately when you step into your shop and make that jump 50 years back in time to work with your old tractor, this concept goes out the window. Even so, when it comes to the charging system, people quickly revert to this idea and start replacing the major components one at a time until it works. The reason you don't find any decals in your replacement set wit ... [Read Article]
