The only issue with rule #4 is it was designed if someone picked up the mascot and failed to post the grab.
In this case the mascot was not found initially, so rule #4 does not apply in this case.
It happened in the USA TOR so a presidence has been set.
It is my opinin that since the mascot was not stolen or lost that is should go to the mascot holder.
Had the mascot not been found then it would go to the first person to post the TAG site.
Anyone else have ideas?
