Why would someone steal an armadillo? Why would someone steal Willie Nelson’s armadillo?
The country music legend is on the hunt for an armadillo thief and he’s asking Facebook for help.
Willie posted a video on Facebook showing a woman taking an armadillo from the stage after a concert in New York.
Willie writes: “Someone stole Aaron’s Armadillo from the sound desk backstage on Sept 19 at the Capital Theater (149 Westchester Ave, Port Chester, NY 10573) Did you go to the show? Did you work the show? Help us find the WOMAN in this video who stole him.”
Aaron Foye is one of Nelson’s sound engineers and the Armadillo, named Ol’ Dillo, has been the band’s unofficial mascot for the last three years. Needless to say, Willie Nelson fans were upset.
Tom Bailey, the general manager of the Capitol, told USA Today: “It stands to reason that somebody at that concert knows who that person is … We love when someone like Willie Nelson comes to us, and we never like him to leave with a bad taste in his mouth.”
