Another gem of a local news story...
Residents in a small Vermont town were baffled when this amazing piece of art appeared seemingly overnight. It wasn’t initially clear who was responsible for the installation (or who exactly the bird was being flipped at).
After some digging, a reporter tracked down a man named Ted Pelkey, who said he dropped $4,000 to send a message to members of the town board he alleges are preventing him from building on a property he’s attempting to use as a new base for the businesses he runs.
He claims the local government has a grudge against him. What better way to drive a point home than with art! I'm thinking this isn't the best way to get on the good side of the local government though.
