CBS Philly reports the thieves saw the video online. A second video was recorded — of the lion returned to its rightful place, with a bouquet of flowers and a note, "sorry for taking your lion."

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. A family in West Chester, Pa., posted a video on social media. It shows two people stealing a lion statue from their front porch. According to CBS Philly, the thieves ended up seeing the video online. Then a second video was recorded of the lion, now returned to its rightful place, with a bouquet of flowers and a note reading, dear owner of lions, we are greatly sorry for taking your lion. The family says, no worries. And they've invited the thieves over for a beer summit. It's MORNING EDITION.
