Lutcher High School bulldog mascot reported stolen
LUTCHER - For the second year in a row, Lutcher High School's live bulldog mascot is believed to have been stolen.
The bulldog, named Spike, was missing on Tuesday morning.
Owner Terry Falgoust says he notified officials that morning after noticing that all of his dog cages were open and Spike was missing.
St. James Parish Sheriff Willy Martin Jr. says his office does not yet have any leads on who may have dognapped Spike, but his deputies are investigating the matter.
Falgoust says the school's previous mascot, Big Seal, was taken in August and never found.
Falgoust has been raising Lutcher High's mascot bulldogs since 1975, when he left military service and bought his first bulldog.
