MADISON (WKOW)-- A statue from the "Bucky on Parade" display was found in the water Thursday morning in Madison, according to the Madison Convention & Visitors Bureau. 

"Bucky on Parade" is a public art event. 85 life-sized Bucky Badger statues were placed throughout Madison and even as far as Sun Prairie and Fitchburg earlier this week.

A picture was taken this morning by Liliana Gagliano of the "Sunburst" Bucky in the water at James Madison Park. 

The Madison Convention & Visitors Bureau said when they got into the office Thursday morning they had "a lot of messages" about the incident.

Organizers of the art display planned on fishing it out Thursday morning.
