Pierre The Voyageur Takes A Hit During Wind Storm

20 Foot Statue Loses Arm And Large Paddle

Two Harbors, Minn

Pierre, the 20 foot tall Voyageur in Two Harbors needs a hand, literally.

A victim of today’s vicious winds, Pierre lost his arm and giant canoe paddle.

He’s the first thing you see when you’re traveling north into Two Harbors and was created 57 years ago.

One employee at the Earthwood Inn tells us that she just hopes he gets fixed soon.

“Everybody really loves Pierre, so it’s going to be very very heart breaking and I hope we can get him fixed fast.” Says Earthwood Inn Employee Nancy Lundholm.

Management tells Fox 21 that based on the damage to Pierre’s arm; his entire arm will need to be replaced. So it could be some time before he’s paddling anywhere any time soon.
