YANKTON, S.D. (AP) — Vandals destroyed a popular riverwalk sculpture near the Meridian Bridge in Yankton.

The Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan reports that the 9-foot-tall granite sculpture of a walleye was tipped Wednesday night. The bottom section of the sculpture that weighed more than a ton was shattered.

The piece of art is valued at nearly $15,000. Sculptor Scott Luken says it can't be salvaged.

Police did not immediately identify any suspects.
