Another Herky statue damaged in Iowa City

Another Herky statue has been damaged in Iowa City.

Damage to the Organic Herky statue was noted Friday morning.

Joshua Schamberger, who heads the Iowa City/Coralville Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, says it appears the damage was due to someone jumping on the statue's back.  That caused both its ankles to crack.

Schamberger says the damage was likely accidental and won't be reported as vandalism.  The group will reach out to artists about repairing the statue.

The cracked ankles follow more severe damage to the Reflections of U Herky in May.  That statue, on the north side of the University of Iowa Pentacrest, was removed for repairs but has since been returned.

Herky is the mascot of the Iowa Hawkeyes.
