Giant Egg Planted In W.Va. Woods Is A Joke
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
The discovery of a very large egg had some West Virginians on the lookout for a very big bird. The egg was discovered in the woods by a hunter. It weighed over four pounds and was about 18 inches round. A local newspaper ran a long story on the mystery egg, which prompted the egg layer to come forward. Herbert Herold confessed that he had set down the egg - it was an ostrich egg - in the woods, as a practical joke on his brother.
