Photo: Hunter S. Thompson’s widow returns stolen Hemingway antlers

Anita Thompson returned a pair of elk antlers to the home of Ernest Hemingway in Ketchum, Idaho over the weekend. Her husband, the writer Hunter S. Thompson, stole the antlers from Hemingway’s home while on assignment for the National Observer in 1964. They’ve hung at Owl Farm in Woody Creek for the last 52 years.“Hunter later regretted this,” Thompson wrote in an e-mail Sunday. “Hunter and I planned to take a road trip back to Ketchum and quietly return them. But we never did.”Pictured above (left to right) are Steve Cohn, Anita Thompson, and Hemingway Legacy Initiative staffers Jenny Davidson and Scott Burton.They’re on the balcony of Hemingway’s preserved Ketchum home, where the Nobel Prize-winning author ended his life in 1961.
