Rioters set fire to the 120-year-old Thompson Elk Fountain located near a federal courthouse in Portland, Oregon, Wednesday night.
Thursday morning, Post Millennial Editor-at-Large Andy Ngô shared video footage of the burning statue:
The rioters also tore off wood boards protecting the courthouses windows and used them for firewood and barricades, according to Fox News.
Protesters threw water bottles and other projectiles as police fired pepper balls and at least one flash-bang at protesters in front of the courthouse, according to freelance reporter Sergio Olmos, the article noted.
The Thompson Elk Fountain was placed in the middle of SW Main Street between 3rd and 4th Avenues in 1900, according to Vintage Portland, a project of the Portland Archives and Records Center (PARC).
The statue was presented to the city by David P. Thompson, a former Portland mayor and civic leader, the site read.
In an update Wednesday, the Portland Police Bureau shared a list of suspects arrested during demonstrations and riots that took place from Tuesday until Wednesday night.
5 Officers and 1 Criminalist sustained injuries during the events last nights, including some from thrown rocks and full beverage cans, the bureau noted, citing photos of the projectiles shared on its Twitter page:

i am waiting for these idiots to go to arlington cemetery to try their shenanigans.
surprised they havent done it yet
That elk probably owned slaves.
Thompson was white.
I am hearing that is where they want to strike over July 4th. They really want this civil war to start.
Pat Buchanan was right about rioters.
Most, if not most normals left Portland in the last decade.
Those staying have voted for this bs, hate America and hate Trump and us.
Antifa runs rampant over the city and No Mask in public is probably a serious crime.
Im sure there are more than a few Marines close by that wouldnt mind messing up the day of these feral idiots!!
Instead of pepper balls and flash bangs, I suggest hollow points and M67 fragmentation grenades.
He thought it was an Ilk. Ilks are quite raciss.
When the hell are the police going to start using real bullets on these rabid animals?
I say on all these threads, what happened to water cannons? No one has given me an answer. They are effective, mobile, and mostly harmless. They can be moved to any street/area that the anarchists try to regroup.
This bastards who do this sort of thing should be shot and killed.
Portland police did nothing? Maybe they SHOULD be defunded if they’re not doing their damn job.
Mayor Ted Wheeler is an antifa ahole. If he order the cops do nothing, they should have said “F—k you” and stopped these bastards anyway.
Id be happy if they would start by using fire hoses!!, but your idea sounds darn good, too!!
Communist Goals recorded in the Congressional Record
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all form of artistic expression. eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substituting shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.
Elk are notorious racists. They’re doing some kind of white power signaling thing with their antlers, for sure.
I imagine they regard the Elk, the Moose, Odd fellows, Knights of Columbus, et al are all regarded as institutions of white supremacy. If it is an institution, it must me destroyed.
