The Bureau of Land Management has recently reported that unknown people have removed the mysterious metal monolith that became the internet sensation.
The accidental discovery was made while counting bighorn sheep by the Utah Department of Public Safety Aero Bureau and the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
Since the structure was on private property, the BML did not remove it, and no one currently knows who has removed it. However, it is known that it was removed on 27th November.
The BLM has also made it clear that the local sheriff’s office is responsible for investigating private property crime.
Between August 2015 and October 2016, Westworld, a television science-fiction show, was shooting in the area, and it is being assumed that it was a prop used on the sets of a movie. 127 Hours and Mission Impossible 2 are also said to have been shot in the same general vicinity.
Whether it was put here by aliens as earlier internet memes highlighted or if it was a prop forgotten on the site, it sure did distract the world in the midst of a global pandemic.
