Concrete Gorilla Found in Neighborhood Park

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) A northeastern Kansas police department would like to reunite a 300-pound concrete gorilla with its rightful owner.

KCTV reports the gorilla statue mysteriously appeared over the weekend in Overland Park. Someone placed it near a gazebo in a neighborhood park in the Kansas City suburb.

Police say the concrete simian was too heavy for officers to move, so they brought in a tow truck with a crane to haul it out of the park.

Officers checked with nearby residents but failed to find anyone who was missing a concrete gorilla.
