Vandals destroy new Carlsbad sculpture

CARLSBAD, N.M. (KRQE) – A brand new sculpture at a Carlsbad park was vandalized over the weekend.

Police say someone either smashed or stole the sculpted birds that were on the structure at Halagueno Arts Park.

The sculpture had just been installed last week and the birds took months to make.

Officials are not sure yet the cost of the damage. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
