Wall Street's 'Charging Bull' Gets A Sweater

LINDA WERTHEIMER, host:

Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer.

A guerrilla artist has taken her brightly colored yarn to a New York City icon. Wall Streeters awoke Sunday to find the "Charging Bull" statue wearing a snug neon purple crocheted sweater. The artist, named Olek, said she wanted to honor the bull's sculptor and give the city a Christmas gift. The wrap was removed within hours, leaving the 7,000 pound bronze bull out in the very bad weather.
