It was a morning of mystery and failed attempts at finders-keepers as a gargoyle appears to somehow have made a crash landing on South Solomon Street near the intersection of Bienville in New Orleans, La. Thursday.

Several people came by to try and lay claim to the wayward mythical creature made of concrete but it was too heavy to lift in to vehicles or load onto a hand truck.

One person, Ross Cassara said he believed the beast was not an old creation since it was made of concrete and rebar which was visible from it's broken wing.
