Repaired Herky statue returned to UI campus

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Herky has returned to his spot on the Pentacrest at the University of Iowa.

The fiberglass Reflections of U Herky is back on its concrete base on campus.

Last month, a vandal broke off the statue beneath Hurkey's knees.

Cedar Rapids artist Kim O'Meara repaired the shattered legs, and the statue was bolted back into place Monday.

University of Iowa Police Chief Chuck Green says the investigation into the vandalism is closed because of no new developments in the case. However, Iowa City Area Crime Stoppers is still offering up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest in the vandalism.

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