Removal of Bengal Causing Controversy
(POCATELLO, ID) – The removal of the Bengal statue outside Reed Gym on the Idaho State University campus is causing a controversy of sorts. School officials said “Benny” was going to be moved to the Natural History Museum, but that came as news to museum managers who weren’t notified that the 58-year-old homemade statue was moving in. The statue was damaged during removal and is now in storage. Several people say they’d like to see the statue repaired and put back on display.
