IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — University of Iowa police are investigating after finding a Herky statue vandalized Friday.

The "Reflections of U" Herky had its fiberglass legs shattered below the knees, leaving only steel rebar attaching the statue to its one-ton concrete base on the north end of the school's Pentacrest.

Herky, the hawk, is the mascot of the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Iowa City Area Crime Stoppers is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest.

The Cedar Rapids artist who created the statue, Kim O'Meara, will determine whether it can be repaired.
