PACIFIC CITY, OR -- The Duckbill Rock at Cape Kiwanda, near Pacific City, was a popular tourist attraction. Video shows vandals pushing the rock over, last week. Chris Havel, with Oregon State Parks, says they're investigating who did it. "We don’t know all of the facts yet, but we’re going to be doing a pretty intense review of this and make some decisions quickly, here, as the week goes on." State Police are also looking into the vandalism.
The rock stood on a pedestal of sandstone. Officials initially thought nature was responsible for its destruction, until video surfaced over the weekend showing people pushing on the rock until it toppled over.
