HURRICANE, Utah (AP) - Private parts have become decidedly public in the small southern Utah town of Hurricane, where a local restaurant caused uproar by displaying a statute of a copper bull with oversized genitalia.

Barista’s restaurant owner Stephen Ward removed the appendage in March, but he told the local newspaper on Saturday that “it’s back, baby, and it’s staying.”

The St. George Spectrum reports (https://bit.ly/1D82Kwn) that Ward decided to replace the prominent feature after the mayor said something that offended him on a recent Web cast.

Ward has been at odds with the city for nearly six years.

He said he replaced the prominent feature Friday morning after hearing the mayor say Barista’s was granted a variance to serve alcohol.

Ward says that is untrue and claims city officials are harassing him.
