Circus appeals for miniature ponys return

The Vienna Christmas Circus (Wiener Weihnachtszirkus) which is currently based in Liesing has made an appeal to the public for help in finding out what has happened to its star attraction a miniature pony.

The miniature pony called Fridolin vanished early on Monday and the 60 centimetres tall animal has not been seen since
.
Circus director Adolf Lauenburger said: "It seems as if somebody opened the paddock and lead the pony out but from our side we are not worried about looking for punishment for whoever was responsible for taking the pony. What is much more important is that we get him back for the next series of performances due to start on Friday.

"Fridolin is the tiny star of our animal crew and works together with another horse to entertain the public. One of the great things about him is that he doesn't have a fixed schedule he just does what he wants and is a real natural performer in entertaining. Nobody taught him he just seems to know."

He said the pony was irreplaceable and as he had been bottle fed and raised since he was a foal he would have been easy to lead away.

He added that the pony may have been taken as a Christmas present and added that he also hoped that wherever he was he was being well looked after.

The pony has a chip identifying him and also answers to his name.
