Peggy’s Cove is normally tranquil and law abiding. But in 2019, the citizens were traumatized by a heinous crime. This fisherman carving named Shorty was stolen! Top money of $200 was offered as a reward. Students from Dalhousie University soon solved the mystery. After a daring rescue from a fraternity house, they returned the life-size statue to owner Peter Richardson. In gratitude, he commissioned the creation of Mrs. Shorty. The happy couple stand in front of the Breakwater Inn and next to the lobster truck.
