Wouldn't it just make sense

Wouldn't it just make sense to ask the seller where he got it?

I guess that is where the suspicious sale part comes in. They probably don't believe what the seller has told them.

What will they do with her?

Will they allow someone to buy her before she is scrapped for the metal value? This statue would be pretty cool in a school garden..They could have history and horticulture classes around her..Maybe include some civic responsiblity pride and morality...
