An inflatable colon estimated to be worth approximately $4,000 has been recovered after it was stolen in Kansas.

 

The University of Kansas Cancer Center says the inflatable colon is used to teach about the dangers of colon cancer.

The inflatable was stolen from the back of a pickup truck about 10 days ago. An anonymous caller led police to an abandoned home where it was located.

It is owned by the Cancer Coalition, which hosts walking and running events under a campaign called “Get Your Rear In Gear.”
