Bendigo is in mourning today after a couch was discovered in the middle of nowhere. A report on Bendigo Have Your Say said the couch was ‘unceremoniously dumped by the ungrateful owner.’

Bendigo Council are trying to track down the owner to help pay for the body removal. Police suspect this may have been the work of the notorious Lazy Boys.

The Bendigo Standard are wondering who would dump a perfectly good couch? It’s perfect for a man cave, a dogs bed or putting a motor in it and driving around Bathurst.

Bendigo has been leaving their thoughts online:

“Rest in Piece”
“Couldn’t chair a less”

A candlelight vigil will be held at Lake Weeroona this Sunday Night.

As a symbol of hope, local musicians are joining together to record and release a charity single called Couch of Hope.

The couch is survived by its two siblings – a couple of single seaters and a couple of cushions and pillows complete with a butt imprint.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the couch at this time.
