Missing IU fountain fish found

April 9, 2013

A bronze fish stolen three years ago from Indiana University's iconic Showalter Fountain has been recovered by school officials in less than pristine condition. Campus art curator Sherry Rouse told The Herald-Times the statue recovered this week is ragged, has "been beaten to death" and also reeks of beer. The fish was recovered from an undisclosed location not in Bloomington by school officials who offered immunity from prosecution after an Instagram photo of the sculpture was posted online.
