SANTA FE (KRQE) - There was a bizarre discovery at the Roundhouse in Santa Fe on Wednesday – a fresh elk pelt at the base of a statue called Tug of War created by Glenna Goodacre.
A state employee who wants to remain anonymous took pictures.
He says the talk in Santa Fe is that it was some sort of message from Native Americans who were upset that Goodacre was named Native American artist of the year because they don't consider her to be Native American. However, that has not been confirmed.
State Police were called in to investigate, but then called Game and Fish to remove the pelt.
News 13 reached out to Goodacre by email, but has not heard back.
