BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A beloved stuffed animal is back home with his owner tonight after quite the adventure, and it’s all thanks to a little help from a stranger.

Last week, the Payne family was visiting the Maryland Zoo when their 4-year-old noticed the stuffed animal sitting alone on a wall in the parking lot.
