A wooden troll that proved to be too popular in a Colorado ski resort town is gone but it's possible he could find another home there.

Workers in Breckenridge used a chainsaw and backhoe to remove the 15-foot sculpture known as Isak Heartstone Thursday. The Summit Daily News reports that most of the work created by Danish artist Thomas Dambo was discarded or recycled but that some pieces were saved and put in storage in hopes of installing the sculpture somewhere else.

Town manager Rick Holman said officials are talking to Dambo and considering some possibilities but said nothing was imminent.

The work was installed on a hiking trail for a summer arts festival. Since then, throngs of troll-seekers have caused problems for nearby homeowners.
