EPSOM, N.H. (AP) - The owner of a 12-foot-tall Trojan horse that greeted residents and visitors of a small New Hampshire town has moved her work, prompting a backlash from the community.

The Concord Monitor reports (https://bit.ly/1P8bOpK ) Sandy Boulanger relocated the wooden horse from Epsom, where the piece and its predecessor sat along U.S. Route 4 for nearly four decades, to her Chichester home about two weeks ago.

Boulanger says she was worried that the decaying statue would be demolished.

Some residents are upset over the departure. Don Harty, the chairman of Epsom’s board of selectmen, says he offered to help with repairs in an attempt to bring it back to Epsom, although some dispute that and say he told her it had to come back to town. Harty denied that account.
