Sisu the Unicorn Bandit finally reunited with his best mate, a purple unicorn soft toy. There is a very popular saying that Dogs are man’s best friend. But have you ever thought “who are dogs’ best friends”. Well here we have the answer and they are Unicorns.
Sisu’s story began when he began prowling the parking lot at Dollar General. Whenever the store door opened, he dashed in and headed straight for the innocent, unsuspecting unicorn. Four or five times he did this, according to the News and Observer, until he was finally thwarted by employees of the Kenansville, N.C. Dollar General, who locked the door and called Duplin County Animal Services.
When Animal Control Officer Samantha Lane responded to the call without any hesitance she purchased the $10 soft toy as bait to get Sisu as she was back in the parking lot prowling at the door. When she put the unicorn in her front seat, he “came along willingly,” Newburn said in the News and Observer story. And although crime doesn’t pay, Lane found it in her heart to grant clemency and let the pup keep his beloved toy. No word as to how the unicorn felt about the arrangement.
Sisu got her name from employees at the Duplin County Animal Services as she was “sassy with other dogs and will not tolerate any backtalk. Very vocal. Should be an only animal or some training. Very obedient with people. Knows sit, lay, heel, and loves unicorns from Dollar General.”

When they posted images of Sisu happily with his purple unicorn social media went berserk. A generous individual even paid the adoption fees for Sisu, making it easier for him to be set free. His plight caught the attention of TV stations and other news agencies. Donations poured in. Unfortunately, there wasn’t any word from Sisu’s original owners.
But while developing this story, we received an update that Sisu has been adopted, and will be with his new family soon! General spokesperson Crystal Luce said the company plans to send a few extra purple unicorns his way.
