CEDARBURG (AP) - Missing: 7-foot Italian sausage wearing a chef's hat and a bow tie.
Guido, one of the Milwaukee Brewers' base-running sausages, is nowhere to be found after it was last seen hanging out in bars.
Someone wearing the Klement's Racing Italian Sausage costume recently posed with patrons at the Milwaukee Curling Club in Cedarburg. The 7-foot-long, $3,000 costume was in a backroom at the bar during a Feb. 16 fundraiser. Someone saw the sausage walk out the door that evening and, according to the Journal Sentinel newspaper, it hit two more bars that night but hasn't been seen since.
The costume is owned by Milwaukee-based sausage company Klement's. The Racing Sausages, including the Bratwurst, the Polish Sausage, the Hot Dog and the Chorizo, are a popular sight running bases at Brewers home games. The costumes are available for rent.
Cedarburg police Detective Jeff Vahsholtz tells the Journal Sentinel that police are interviewing bar patrons and looking for the costume.
