    DULUTH, Minn. -- John Bray is looking for the person who lost a massive gorilla on Blatnik Bridge in Duluth.

    Bray says he was driving across the bridge Thursday afternoon when a huge stuffed brown stuffed animal flew off the truck in front of him. Bray says it flew up 50 feet and came down in the middle of the road.

    He says he pulled over and traffic stopped. He then shoved it into the back of his sports utility vehicle and brought it to his office. He's a spokesman for the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

    Bray says it was a funny incident but someone could have been seriously hurt. He says the driver is required by law to have a load tied down, but he or she won't get a ticket.

    He says the driver could be a Wisconsin resident because the truck was coming from there.
