SEATTLE (AP) - A Bonsai tree worth more than $2,000 was stolen from the Pacific Bonsai Museum Monday and officials are asking for its return, no questions asked.

The Seattle Times reports (https://is.gd/eyCApP ) that the 60-year-old juniper tree, measuring just 16 inches, was snatched early Monday. Security alarms were activated at 4:40 a.m.

Bonsai Museum curator Aarin Packard says a gardener discovered the tree’s pot beyond the museum’s fence, but the plant was missing.

Packard said the tree could be fine with the proper care, but without bonsai expertise it will only survive a day or two.
