Surprising discovery underneath Bradley statue

Posted: Updated:

An accident that knocked down a famous statue on Bradley's campus led to an unusual discovery...

Check out this squirrel they found hidden under the statue of the school's founder Lydia Moss Bradley.

The artwork was knocked off it's pedestal when a driver fell asleep at the wheel and crashed into it over the weekend.

Then, this week, as an artist was making repairs, they took Bradley off her marble base and discovered a small, plywood cut-out.

School leaders say it appears to be worn but beyond that, they have no idea who hid the squirrel.
