Florentine Boar Update

In response to this post about the famous Florentine Boar statue not being replaced after restoration in a park in Derby, England, so as not to upset muslims, an anonymous commenter relays the good news that a petition drive in the community resulted in the statue's return to its proper place!
The Florentine Boar was replaced in Derby Arboretum in November 2005.
This followed a campaign and two thousand signatures demanding its return.
See the news and photos here.

Good news!
