Executive Director Kristine Bickford tells WPTZ-TV that volunteers moved the remains of the statue into storage because children were traumatized upon seeing it.
She says on three separate occasions vandals burned the statue's face, took off its head and sawed off its feet. The head was discovered dumped near the city's waterfront.
Bickford estimates it will cost $7,500 to buy a new statue and says the house is waiting on an insurance claim. She says the new statue will be kept indoors.
