There's been quite the buzz lately surrounding the giant fork in Westport, and it appears that another mystery is unraveling.

Back in July, someone had the nerve to cut down Westporter Tom Schmitt's famous fork sculpture between Old Harbor and River roads. Westport Police never found the culprit, but at least the fork was found, albeit bruised and slightly damaged.

Schmitt had some repair work to do.

It's been a month-and-a-half and Schmitt has yet to give an update on the current condition of the fork as well as when he'll return it to the popular fork in the road. Hack/teeth marks riddled the base from which the fork was removed with some kind of saw.

However, if you've driven past the giant fork's former location recently, you might have seen a new addition to the area.

It's quite underwhelming, to say the least: An average-sized fork standing upright on a tiny plank of wood sits proudly atop a stone pillar.

At least it's something.

Schmitt has yet to respond to a call, so it remains to be seen if this little mounted fork is his work.

As of right now, it's unclear as to who exactly planted the replacement fork -- if it's temporary, permanent, or perhaps a gift from someone who admires the giant fork.
