ANIMALS DISPLACED BY MEAN DADDY
THEY WERE HAPPY THERE
GREENDALE Several animals were rousted from their slumber and expelled from their habitat by an angry man who claimed ownership of their newly acquired nest.
Greendale resident Vince Vitrano discovered last week the winter hat normally used during his daily outdoor run, was missing. It was later located in a cabinet and inhabited by four plastic animals which appeared to be sleeping.
"So I picked it up, dumped the animals, and put my hat on," Vitrano said of the incident. "I didn't think it was any big deal."
It was a big deal to the animal's caretaker, however. 2 1/2 year old Ella Vitrano was clearly upset by the displacement of the animals which, heretofore, had been perfectly happy in their new home.
"I put them in the hat," the younger Vitrano stated in an interview. "Daddy took them out," she continued.
When asked how she came to posses the hat, Vitrano offered, "I find it."
It was not clear where the animals would ultimately rest, however for the time being they were being cared for on the coffee table.
