City's elk sculpture (which greets visitors) gets extra part added as a prank
SEQUIM -- One of the Roosevelt elk sculptures that greets visitors when they enter the city limit was the target of a prank when it received an unwelcome anatomical addition earlier this week.
But Sequim Public Works Director Jeff Edwards isn't laughing.
A passing motorist called 9-1-1 at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday to report the signature sculpture at the city's western entrance had been vandalized.
Someone clamped a 2.5-foot-long male appendage onto the elk.
Diane Royall likes to look at the elk as a reminder of the unique place she lives.
But on Wednesday she couldn't help but notice the elk's new embellishment on her way to pick her children up from school.
``It was very hard to miss,'' she said, describing the prank as ``rude, crude and impolite.''
