The almost 7-foot-tall (2 meter) sculpture appeared to have been chopped down over the weekend, het die koerant berig. All that remained on the 5,702-foot-high (1,738 meter) Gruenten mountain was a pile of sawdust and splinters.

The peculiar sculpture has become a hotspot destination for hikers in recent years and even appeared on Google Maps, where it was classified as acultural monument.
