German police investigate missing penis statue

German police are investigating the disappearance of a 7-foot statue resembling a penis.

An almost seven-foot sculpture of a phallic statue disappeared from a hillside in Germany over the weekend.

The statue’s disappearance triggered an investigation, with local media reporting that police could not say if an actual crime had been committed. 

It’s understood that the wooden statue, which had become a colourful feature of the landscape since being erected several years ago, was reduced to sawdust over the weekend.

While it is unclear who mounted the statue, recognised by Google as a “cultural monument”, locals in the area say it was originally made as a prank birthday present.
