Giant garnet and black rooster adorns Vista sidewalk

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - If you've driven around Columbia lately, you may have noticed a big bird in the Vista.

The garnet and black rooster stands outside the Mellow Mushroom on Gervais Street. It's a new addition to their sidewalk décor.    

The restaurant tells us the rooster actually matches another piece they have inside and just happened to go up as football season started.

The statue comes to Columbia from Thailand.
