After the giant wooden pink pony he built was stolen from a public park near his house, artist Thomas Dambo of Denmark embarked on an extensive, civilized journey to track it down. Which is refreshing considering the fact that in the United States, we just shoot people who steal stuff.

He first put up a post on Facebook, offering money for the pony’s return. The post generated plenty of attention and soon he received a lead from someone who saw men stealing the pony at 2 a.m. He was even given an address where the pony might be hiding.

What happened next? He confronted the pony thief (all on video, of course) and the thief immediately fessed up, offering a pretty damn good excuse. If only we could solve more of the world's problems like the Danish pony guy.
