Guido, one of the Milwaukee Brewers' sausages that run the bases at home games, has been found.

The seven-foot tall, $3,000 Italian sausage costume was reported missing on Feb. 16. But Wednesday, two men walked into a suburban Milwaukee bar, deposited the costume on a bar stool and took off.

According to the Milwaukee Journal, Guido's garb was found inside TJ Ryan's bar in Cedarburg, Wisc. Bartender Jen Mohney said the men told her, "You did not see anything." To that, Mohney thought to herself, "Like I didn't just see two guys plop a sausage on a barstool."

The costume was first pilfered from the back room of the new Milwaukee Curling Club in Cedarburg during a beer tasting and curling event. Cedarburg police said they received reports that someone wearing the costume had been seen in at least two other locations and posed for photos with customers.

"We thought it was funny at the time," Cedarburg police detective Jeff Vahsholtz told the newspaper.

Vahsholtz said no decision has been made on whether charges will be filed against the perpetrator(s).

Rewards began to pop up as the legend of the pilfered sausage grew. Mustard Girl All American Mustards in Pleasant Prairie, Wis., offered a year's supply of mustard to the person who returned the costume. GLK Foods of Appleton, Wis., offered a year's supply of sauerkraut.
