    OYSTER BAY, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities are hunting for the person who stole a 15-inch walrus tusk from Theodore Roosevelt's home on Long Island.

    The superintendent of the Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, Thomas Ross, says it was one of a pair displayed on a fireplace mantel. It was discovered missing Feb. 22.

    Old Brookville, N.Y., police and the National Park Service are investigating. The FBI has added the tusk to its national stolen art list.

    In 2006, a man pleaded guilty to stealing Roosevelt's revolver. It was returned to the historical site in Oyster Bay, N.Y.

    I think she was on Pawn Stars, just the other night.

    Shall I alert the media?

    Sounds to me like they need to beef up security.

    Next thing you know, they'll be taking 338 hits to the back.
