Someone stole pieces of a life size bronze statue from Riverstone Park in Coeur d’Alene sometime Friday night or this morning and the Coeur d’Alene Police Department is investigating the theft.

The statue, titled “Kate,” features a 1920s era woman on a bicycle with two dogs. The woman and the larger dog were removed in an effort that took tools, time and more than one person. The woman weighs several hundred pounds.

The crime is considered a felony since the artwork is valued at $25,000. Anyone with information about the theft is asked to call police at (208) 769-2320.
