Is there a bomb or something inside? Doesn't that count as a mysterious package for authorities?

NEW ORLEANS -- An old fountain in the Lower Garden District is now a site for the Pokemon GO craze -- or least homage to the game.

Sometime Sunday morning, a Pikachu statue, constructed from fiberglass but made to look like bronze, was placed in the fountain in a small park near the intersection of Terpsichore and Prytania streets.

It is unknown who placed the statue in the park or exactly when it was placed in the defunct fountain, but the statue appears to pay homage to the Pokemon GO, a location-based augmented reality game.

Nintendo is likely to bring that down before any government action can do it... It looks awful.

That's pretty cool even if the statue isn't the best looking. Gonna try to visit it before something happens to it.
