Fake pterodactyl nabs surfer in statue prank
Edited on Sun Aug-14-11 04:53 PM by AsahinaKimi

CARDIFF-BY-THE-SEA, Calif.A bronze surfer statue near San Diego that's been the target of many gags has been hit again.

Unknown pre-dawn pranksters on Saturday constructed an elaborate scene of a pterodactyl seemingly about to pluck the sculpture of a young surfer off his board. The pranksters placed a painted backdrop of a volcanic eruption behind the surfer statue.

The Los Angeles Times ( http://lat.ms/q77ToU ) reports crowds of gawkers and photographers gathered around the 16-foot creation after the sun rose.

Last year someone surrounded the roadside statue in Cardiff-by-the-Sea with a papier mache model of a great white shark that appeared to be swallowing it whole.
