The Golden Brat is back on display at American Legion Post 52 in La Crosse after it was stolen early Friday morning.

The 90 pound bratwurst was taken off the grill around 3 a.m. on Friday morning.

The suspects quickly dropped the 8 foot long brat behind the building and it fell into 3 separate pieces.

This was the 7th year of the slicing of the Golden Brat.

Bartender Cali Hoffman says that a lot of people put in a lot of work to prepare the bratwurst.

"It was just like a tradition that we have here it's kinda like a lot of money wasted, a lot of time, preparation wasted. I know that the people have been cooking it since 9 o'clock last night, been here all night, didn't sleep anything like that and people just stole it just for fun and games," Hoffman said.

Although the brat could not be served, it was still sliced up as tradition.

Police are still looking for those involved in the stealing of the Golden Brat.
