BEMIDJI, MN -- An iconic Minnesota landmark is injured and will need some reconstructive surgery.
The massive Paul Bunyan statue in Bemidji has a broken right arm.
According to the city's mayor, the concrete he is made of gave way, causing it to separate.
It only remains attached by rebar.
A conservation group will be onsite next week to assess and make repairs.
In the meantime, barriers are set up around Paul to keep people a safe distance away.
Statues of Paul and Babe the Big Blue Ox have called Bemidji home since 1937, and were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.
