Arturo Di Modica's 7,100 pound bronze 'Charging Bull' statue reappears in Bowling Green after being secretly installed overnight near the New York Stock Exchange Christmas tree six days earlier, then sent to a police impound lot

The Wall Street Bull was meant to be a temporary installation since it was still owned by the artist and not a donation to the Parks Department, but its temporary display has now extended nearly 30 years.
