Prosecutors filed papers Wednesday seeking to seize the 1982 painting, called "Hannibal," in an effort to help Brazilian authorities claim it. U.S. authorities said they found the painting in an Upper East Side warehouse in November. It wasn't clear who brought it into the U.S., but prosecutors said it arrived via John F. Kennedy International Airport.

The puppies in the window looked secure enough. The pricey pooches were protected by metal bars, two locked doors, alarm sensors and video surveillance cameras.

"I'm really mad this time," said Paul Ro, who owns the shop with his wife, Tina.
