COLORADO SPRINGS – A sculpture of a ‘snipe’ on loan from a South Korean artist that was recently stolen from Boulder Crescent Park in Colorado Springs has been recovered.

The 10-inch tall sculpture is valued at $70,000.

The Colorado Springs Downtown Partnership said the bird sculpture went missing sometime last week on Monday or Tuesday.

The Downtown Partnership reported the sculpture was found Monday by a jogger who recognized the artwork from recent reports and turned it in.
