We sometimes see alerts about bonsai stolen in Europe, but - sadly! - it happens here in North America too. Please click on the link to the information at Lakeshore Bonsai:
Here's a picture, from Lakeshore Bonsai. Please be alert for this bonsai; a tree of this quality will not just blend into the typical backyard in the USA or Canada. Nor will it be easy to dispose of if the bonsai community, and our friends, are on the watch.

If you have your own blog, especially in the USA or Canada, please pass on this alert! I learned of this theft from Ian Young's Bonsai Eejit. Ian learned of it from Lakeshore Bonsai. You get the idea. And writing this post has taken me all of about 15 minutes, link, picture, and all. Not much to ask, in my opinion.
