At 7 feet tall and 10 feet wide, the “Duckbill” at Cape Kiwanda State National Area has been a popular stop on the Oregon coast for generations. Last Thursday, Oregon Parks and Recreation Department officials announced the Duckbill Rock had collapsed. Now, we know why.
Over the weekend, a video showing three people toppling the sandstone treasure went viral and, as Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan reports, authorities have launched an investigation to find the culprits.
