Dog ‘saves’ tournament

27 Mar, 1966

picklesAfter seven days missing, the Jules Rimet trophy is found by a border collie named Pickles. It has been wrapped in newspaper and dumped at the bottom of a South London garden hedge. Pickles discovers the cup while on a walk with his owner, dockworker David Corbett. Other reports say the trophy is propped up against the wheel of a car parked next to the hedge. Pickles is treated as a national hero in England.
