Thieves have been making off with the bronze discs embedded into sidewalks along the Embarcadero. The eight-pound plaques, which depict San Francisco Bay animals and birds, can be recycled for $1.50 per pound at a scrap metal recycler. The plaques are being replaced, and the Port of San Francisco is trying to find more foolproof ways to anchor the art in the pavement. [KTVU]
